(plural or singular pronoun, article)
Definition: 1) A plural or singular pronoun meaning "you," used primarily in Middle English, and 2) A definite article, replacing "the."
YE is one of those words that, in a historical context, can crop up all the time — even when it’s annoyingly out of date. Thanks to Hollywood, bad novelists and tourist traps worldwide, YE has evolved into a sort of catch-all word, signaling that Something Historical is being represented or about to take place. In real (not pseudo) history, YE first appeared as a plural form of "thou" sometime before the 12th century. Likewise, YE as an article (replacing "the") first came into usage around 1551. The word is actually a derivation of the Old English word gē.
Today, YE in its pronoun form is popularly used to reference Middle English language and customs. In particular, it’s trotted out with great gusto by folks attending Renaissance Festivals, singing Christmas carols and performing Shakespeare. As a definite article, YE is commonly used to designate fake-history tourist traps, typically lurking in rows of half-timbered houses ("Ye Olde Inn," "Ye Olde Candle Shoppe," "Ye Olde English Bulldogge" and so on).
Rather endearingly, you can still hear YE in some rural areas of England (particularly Yorkshire), where it’s used as both a plural and singular form of "you."
Ways to use YE in a sentence:
- "Will ye no come back again?"
- "Good day to ye"
- "Let’s go to Ye Olde Tea Shoppe for a cuppa."
