Using Thee, Thy, Thou & Ye

Post Neon Knight on Sun 29 Jul - 13:10

https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-thee-thy-thou-and-ye Top answer (slightly edited):

These are all different archaic forms of the word 'you'. Their application differs based on context, as shown in the table below:



THOU is used when talking to a person who is the SUBJECT of the verb, e.g. "Thou art true and faithful."

THEE is used when talking to a person who is the OBJECT of the verb, e.g. "I beseech thee, merciful Lord."

THY is used when talking to one person. The word after 'thy' should begin with a consonant sound, e.g. "Honour thy word, son."

THINE is used when talking to one person. The word after 'thine' should begin with a vowel sound e.g. "Honour thine ancestors, son."

YE is used when talking to multiple people e.g. "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may."

I'm actually sad we stopped using some of these. I like ye because it gives the "you" a proper plural form. I never liked "you all." Worse still is "you guys." ugh.

^ you mean Ya'll, with a southern accent.
My sister lives in NC and my nieces all speak with that southern drawl. It sounds charming to me, I like it.

Up here we say Youz guyz.

I am going to throw a couple of Ye and thine into my vocabulary and see what kind of reaction I get. People will really think that I have flipped my lid!
