or {Yours} (y[=oo]rz); obj. {You}.] [OE. thou, [thorn]u, AS.

[1913 Webster]

Note: "In Old English, generally, thou is the language of a
lord to a servant, of an equal to an equal, and
expresses also companionship, love, permission,
defiance, scorn, threatening: whilst ye is the language
of a servant to a lord, and of compliment, and further
expresses honor, submission, or entreaty." --Skeat.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Thou is now sometimes used by the Friends, or Quakers,
in familiar discourse, though most of them corruptly
say thee instead of thou.
[1913 Webster]

In vain you tell your parting lover
You wish fair winds may waft him over. --Prior.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Though you is properly a plural, it is in all ordinary
discourse used also in addressing a single person, yet
properly always with a plural verb. "Are you he that
hangs the verses on the trees, wherein Rosalind is so
admired ?" --Shak. You and your are sometimes used
indefinitely, like we, they, one, to express persons
not specified. "The looks at a distance like a
new-plowed land; but as you come near it, you see
nothing but a long heap of heavy, disjointed clods."
--Addison. "Your medalist and critic are much nearer
related than the world imagine." --Addison. "It is
always pleasant to be forced to do what you wish to do,
but what, until pressed, you dare not attempt." --Hook.
You is often used reflexively for yourself of
yourselves. "Your highness shall repose you at the
tower." --Shak.
[1913 Webster]
