# What is the meaning of 屏幕前的你?

In the following sentence:

I don't understand what 屏幕前的你 means. 屏幕 means "screen", but then I don't understand the part 前的你.

So what does the phrase and the whole sentence mean and how does it work grammatically?

• you who are in front of the (e.g.TV) screen, 屏幕前 used attributively to 你 – user6065 Nov 4 '17 at 12:15
• see more examples of 的+人称代词 （的＋personal pronoun), feed 的我／你／他／她／我们／你们／他们／她们 ichacha, 部份的我 part of me 超码的我 super size me 痴心的我 devoted to you, some grammars say this use is restricted to literary language, but the present example may show that it can be used colloquially (humourously ?) – user6065 Nov 4 '17 at 12:29
• @user6065 So does the 你 refer to the reader, or the 当代青少年 as the user "dan" explained in the answer? – Blaszard Nov 5 '17 at 12:51
• comment #2 refers to the literal meaning (disregarding context) and "how does it work grammatically". Why not ask the same question of the other user answering the question? – user6065 Nov 5 '17 at 14:26

So, here 屏幕前的你 could be translated to the youth of today who are still sitting in front of screens.
