Pronunciation

Etymology 1

From the Middle English and Anglo-Saxon the.

Pronoun

thee (second person singular, objective case)

  1. (archaic, Template loop detected: Template:context 1) you (singular)
    • M. Le Page Du Pratz, History of Louisisana (PG), p. 40
      When our Chiefs command us, we never require the reasons: I can say nothing else to thee.
Usage notes

Thee is the objective case of thou, but it eventually came to be used by Quakers, Amish, and other Pennsylvania Dutch people in place of the nominative thou, along with the third person singular form of verbs.

Thee is a little strange, I think.
