The meaning of 'Hear Ye'

As you all can see my blog is 'Hear ye, Hear ye!'. I just found out that someone found my site by 'Googling' for the meaning of 'Hear ye'. So i've decided to write a short post on the meaning of it. My own interpretation that is.

It's usually used when there's an important announcement for all to hear and catches people's attention. I'm sure you all have seen old movies where a herald would stand in the middle of the town square with a scroll in hand and shouts 'hear ye, hear ye!'. And then would proceed making his official announcement that would originate from the castle. Another commonly used expression would be 'Hear hear'. This is often used when one wants to call to attention of what somebody just said.

Hear ye, Hear ye! I'm moving in to my own home tomorrow!

Ditto :) But I did read your article on newspaper sexism. Sad, but true. It should certainly have been "22 people" and not "3 women". Just gotta stay alert, I guess!
