Thread Name: Help: With 'Thee/Thou/Thy
Subject: RE: Help: With 'Thee/Thou/Thy
Sorry Snuffy. As I said, in current usage thou is archaic, and thee has taken the place of it. As it is singular, 'thee is' is correct. You would not say 'he are' and we don't say 'thee are'. Language is a living thing, and this change took place before my great grandparents' time. You may say it as you wish, but expect a few smiles from those of us who use this language every day. (And it does NOT fall in the same place as the highly incorrect and uneducated 'me and him')
