why not "hoort je ons"?

Because remember that in a question, if the subject is je (or the stressed form "jij"), then the verb loses the -t at the end.

Jou cannot be the subject of a sentence.

El2thK - And why is that? I ask because "je" works, and "jou" seems to only differ in terms of it being the stressed version of it. I must be missing a point here.

El2theK - Oh, I see what you mean. After looking at those graphs it became clearer to me.

I guess it got tricky, because "je" can both work as a "personal subject pronoun" and also as a "personal object pronoun", while as you mention, "jou" cannot.

That's what got me, thanks for the insight.
