Daily Lesson 10

Thee and Thou and all the rest...
Using "thee", "thou" and other such second person singular references can
be confusing.  Here are some examples of how they are used and the
language rule instances for each case:

Thou wast in the pavilion. (one person, subject)
Ye were in the pavilion. (several people, subject)
I saw thee in the pavilion. (one person, object)
I saw you in the pavilion. (several people, object)
That is thy tent. (one person, possessive)
That is your tent. (several people, possessive)
That tent is thine. (one person, predicate possessive)
That tent is yours. (several people, predicate possessive)

Shakespearian Word/Phrase of the Day:
'Tis all one - it's all the same; makes no difference.
     "Whether we dine on fish or fowl, 'tis all one to me."

Nunc est bibendum.
Politicians prefer unarmed peasants.
