Thou, not you-yew-ewe.

Thou not you/yew/ewe

In legal settings, the word “you” may mean a plural entity at all times, and not a singular entity at any time. This may be because the courts want thou to be both a man and the representative of a business – two things, not one. The courts have jurisdiction over the business, not the man, unless the man agrees to represent the business. Simply looking at the conjugation of the verb ‘to be’ shows something is not right.

In English class, we’re taught that the conjugations of “you” singular and “you” plural are the same, whereas in French and Spanish, they differ.


I am    We are
You are      You are   [ Same! ]
He is      They are


je suis     nous sommes
tu es      vous êtes   [ Different! ]
il/elle est    ils/ells sont


yo soy     nosotros somos
tú eres      vosotros sois [ Different! ]
él/ella/usted es      ellos/ellas/ustedes son

Same say that in court, when the magistrate says “you are,” we hear the singular version when in fact the magistrate is saying the plural form and means you, the man, and your person/corporation. The man and the corporation. Two persons/personas.

You might be a homonym for Yew, a tree. The fourth definition for ‘yew’ is the evergreen tree, of the genus Taxus, or its branches as a symbol of sorrow, death, or resurrection. Well this fits in with all the other death references, such as good mourning or ‘a wake’ and the fact that priests where black and the court issues a ‘summons’ to call up the dead.

Perhaps the word You is a lingual equivalent of the French verb Vous. You. Vous. You. Vous. They sound similar. They use so much Latin and French their courts; this would be another French word. The problem is the average man thinks its the singular You. The average man mistakenly agrees to be both himself and represent the person.

Some say you is a homonym for Ewe, a sheep.

Better than using “you,” would be to use “thou,” as is still done by some communities. The conjugation would be similar to the conjugation for He/She, such as “Thou is” like “He is.”

  • Thou is wearing a nice sweater.
  • What is thou’s name?

Notice that “thou” begins with “t” as does the French “Tu” and the Spanish “Tú.”

It’s a bit of a stretch, but notice that by removing the middle two letters, “ho,” from “thou,” it’s left as “Tu” (Thou).
