By Noah Webster.
The; a contraction in which y represents the Anglo-Saxon character for th; sometimes incorrectly pronounced like the pronoun ye.
By James Champlin Fernald
Properly the nominative plural of the second person, of which thou is the singular, but in later times also used as an objective after verbs and prepositions. Ye is now used only in the sacred and solemn style; in common discourse and writing you is exclusively used. "But ye are washed, but ye are sanctified."-1 Cor. vi. 11. "Loving of-fenders thus I will excuse ye."-Shak. "I thank ye; and be blest for your good comfort."-Shak. "The confusion between ye and you did not exist in Old English. Ye was always used as a nominative, and you as a dative or accusative. In the English Bible the distinction is very carefully observed, but in the dramatists of the Elizabethan period there is a very loose use of the two forms."-Dr. Morris.
