    dear negar_aghili
    the words you asked about in the first question are not used at all. they just represent a special meaning.
    the first one means you as a single(like single you in frnce and iranian) and the second one represents you as a plural(like plural you in these two languages.
    but for the second one, i have no idea.


    hope it helps

    Re: meaning

    To deculuralise is to remove the cultural context- some English books, try to present things that don't require a knowledge of the culture to understand.
