Singular “You”

Singular “You”

I found this fascinating passage written a few hundred years ago, with concerns about singular “you” (instead of “thou”). Language changed, and now “you” is formally accepted as both singular and plural.

(I use singular “they” in rulebooks: it’s how many people speak, it’s gender neutral, and I believe it will keep gaining formal acceptance.)
