Pronoun Plurality

When updating the seventeenth century verb forms, the editors were faced with a “translation” problem: while seventeenth-century English differentiated between the plural and singular “you” with the pronouns “ye” (plural) and “thee” or “thou” (singular), for example, modern English does not. The KJVER’s solution to this problem is to note the plurality of the modern verb forms with a superscript p ( p ) beside each form of “you” to distinguish the plural forms from their singular forms. For example, your is “your p,” yours is “yours p,” and you is “you p.” Whenever these forms reflect the name of deity, they begin with a capital letter. Noting the plurality of the seventeenth-century pronoun forms demonstrates the commitment of the KJVER to ensuring that the wording and meaning of the KJV is not lost, even in plural pronouns, but only carefully modified for increased readability.
