Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here is the first-ever Scribe poem:
Rose are red,
Violets are blue,
What’s so special,
About the word “you”?
The answer: unlike every other nominative pronoun (pronouns that are the subject of the sentence, e.g., I, he, she, we, they), the pronoun “you” can be masculine, feminine, singular, or plural, e.g.,
- You are my hero, Superman!
- My queen, you are the fairest in the land.
- And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
So indeed, “you” are special!
That is all for now …
