Note: ☞ Though you is properly a plural, it is in all ordinary discourse used also in addressing a single person, yet properly always with a plural verb. “Are you he that hangs the verses on the trees, wherein Rosalind is so admired ?” --Shak.
You and your are sometimes used indefinitely, like we, they, one, to express persons not specified. “The looks at a distance like a new-plowed land; but as you come near it, you see nothing but a long heap of heavy, disjointed clods.” --Addison. “Your medalist and critic are much nearer related than the world imagine.” --Addison. “It is always pleasant to be forced to do what you wish to do, but what, until pressed, you dare not attempt.” --Hook.
You is often used reflexively for yourself of yourselves. “Your highness shall repose you at the tower.” --Shak.
