Mostly used with yon, but apparently stand alone acceptable. This is further evidence that English is pidgin German, in that we have simplified a complex language with multiple cases, conjugations and articles. Phillip Hudson heretofore compiled a list of thither like words: hence, whence, hither, yon, yonder. We all know what they mean in context, but no one uses them in speech or if so it is considered fun or funny. I have a brass plate in the foyer of my house with "remove thy shoes". The thy provokes comments from persons of English as a second language.
