What does `thou` mean?
'Thou' is an archaic form of 'you.'
It is almost completely out-of-use with only a few English dialects continuing to use it in various forms. In the past, 'thou' was the informal 'you', while the 'you' that we commonly say today was reserved to show respect or courtesy. Today 'thou' is almost exclusively used in religious settings or in literature which is set in or before the 17th century.
