    they- all of them, a group or number of people, those people

    thy- a more religious term for describing something oneself would do

    It is proper to use "they" when referring to more than one person not including yourself. Use "Thay" when you are talking about a fictional country in Faerun. Use "thy" when you are feeling archaic.

    Thay is unrelated to they and thy, thine and thou. Choose thine words wisely, as they say, a jug of wine and thou, thy will be done.

    Obsolete 2nd person singular pronouns, since replaced by the plural form, you.

    Subject: Thou

    Object: Thee

    Possessive pronoun: Thine

    Possessive adjective: Thy

    Reflexive pronoun: thyself


    Thou must spirit thyself away! Should my husband see thee, there will be trouble between ours and thine.

    "Thay" isn't a word, "they" is third person plural (as opposed to he/she which is third person singular) and "thy" is olde englyshe (or biblical english) for "your".
