You in Modern English


The pronoun you is used to refer to a person in an indefinite situation. It is not the same as U, Ewe, Yew, or Ure, and in Modern English, you is used in the plural. It was historically used only in the dative case, but it is used in all cases in all dialects today.

Although it first premiered on the Lifetime network, “You” is now available on Netflix. It has received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. It has an 89% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an 8.1 rating on IMDb. The show was a hit at its Lifetime premiere, and will now be released on Netflix.

You and ye are related, though their functions differ. They were used in different contexts to mark relationships, and they are sometimes used to show deference and respect. The use of ye in informal speech continued into the 18th century, though you for the singular gradually lost respectability. In an attempt to rein in the use of you for the singular, special plural forms were introduced, though none of these forms became standard.

In “You,” Joe Goldberg is a bookstore manager obsessed with a graduate-school student named Guinevere Beck. His obsession grows after an encounter with her, but quickly becomes a dangerous situation. Penn Badgley, Elizabeth Lail, and Luca Padovan star in the series. The first season premiered on Lifetime in September 2018, with a sequel in December 2019.

In English, you’re often confused with your name. However, you can make your identity more obvious by using the proper pronunciation. It is often easier to spell a word with your name than your last name. You can also use you’re instead of your name to indicate who’s the owner of a particular item.
