8 English Ways to Make “You” Plural

“You” can be quite confusing sometimes. You know, sometimes “you” means only you, and at other times “you” means more than just you. Got it?

You see, what I mean is that “you” refers both to singular and plural nouns, so it’s not always easy to be sure whether a speaker is talking only to you or to you and also to others with you if they use “you” alone in a sentence, for example.

Wow, that’s quite a mess, isn’t it!? Hehe.
