From Middle High German ir, from Old High German ir, from West Germanic *jīz, variant of Proto-Germanic *jūz, from Proto-Indo-European *yū́. Cognate with Low German ji, jie, Dutch jij, gij, je, English ye, Gothic 𐌾𐌿𐍃 (jūs).
- (personal) you (pl.).
|2nd person plural|
Usage notes 
- This form is the plural of du; it is used when addressing a group of people with whom one is fairly intimate, such as family members, friends, and children. The more polite equivalent used when addressing strangers is Sie (which is both singular and plural).
- As with all personal pronouns, the genitive case is very rare. It is used only in archaic speech and in very high registers with verbs such as erinnern and gedenken that take a genitive object. The possessive determiner euer, on the other hand, which is put in front of the nouns it modifies and is inflected to agree with that noun, is perfectly common.
