A match made in heaven.
Shouldn’t this be “with this ring, I thee wed”?
Huh. I suppose so. That’s a bit of a weird archaic wording though, isn’t it. Hm. :)
“Thee” is the second person singular familiar form, which mostly dropped out of the language sometime after King James had the Bible translated. Knowing it is useful if; one is doing historic recreations, reading pre-1700 texts, dealing with old school Quakers, or just want to know more about how this silly language we purport to speak works.
Thou is the object form of thee. Thine is the possessive. etc.
This demagoguery brought to you by the letter V.
Shouldn’t that be, “This demagoguery brought to THEE by the letter V.”
And shouldn’t that be, “by the character V”? Especially if you’re an anarchist: “Nothing is better for Thee than V.”
Hmm, Sesame Street teaches your kid Anarchy as why as rules of Grammar. Interesting choice of things for a tv show.
I believe the classic/archaic formula is “I do thee wed”. This kind of construction, with the “extra” do and this position of the pronoun, is quite common in Shakespeare, I believe.
As for the match made in heaven… it’s a match alright: ring against elephant!
I thankst thou, Muzhik. The muse doth wear thee well.
And, because I now have naught more to speak, I bid thee safe reads.
