At the trial of Sir Walter Raleigh for treason, the prosecutor (Sir Edward Coke) berated Raleigh with the words ‘All that Lord Cobham did was by Thy instigation, Thou viper; for I ‘thou’ Thee, Thou traitor’ (Hughes, 1991: 98) Our culture also knowingly distinguishes respectful forms and informal ones.
