Seriously, who types "y'all"? And isn't "all of y'all" redundant?

Note: I live in Texas, but everytime that word escapes my mouth I cringe.

No, that was before Zilla started the group.
Too bad, that was when the kids put everything on facebook!
I think it was college only that year.

How y'all are?

I use y'all all the time. I used to hear "all of y'all" all the time when I lived in Mobile, especially from the big haired girls who grew up around there, and the Auburn boys I knew..

Oh my.... here we go:

It's y'all, singular. If you wanna do plural, it's "all y'all"... there's no "of" in there"

Of course, out here in the NE, it's "you" and "youse".

Better than "ain't be no"

I consider myself to have decent enough grammar and spelling, and I constantly am irritated by students who type up things and can't even bother to spell check their work. And it drives me BONKERS when they write something like "He effected me in a bad way"... grrrr...

I had a friend tell me that one of his professors not only said "axe" instead of "ask," she actually spelled it that way.

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction
'cause i try and i try and i try and i try
I can't get no, i can't get no

When i'm drivin' in my car
And that man comes on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what i say

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no satisfaction
'cause i try and i try and i try and i try
I can't get no, i can't get no

When i'm watchin' my tv
And that man comes on to tell me
How white my shirts can be
But he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarrettes as me
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what i say

I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get no girl reaction
'cause i try and i try and i try and i try
I can't get no, i can't get no

When i'm ridin' round the world
And i'm doin' this and i'm signing that
And i'm tryin' to make some girl
Who tells me baby better come back later next week
'cause you see i'm on losing streak
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what i say

I can't get no, i can't get no
I can't get no satisfaction
No satisfaction, no satisfaction, no satisfaction

OK, you're half right.
It's y'all, PLURAL. you never say y'all to only one person, only to a group.

Anyone who does say y'all to one person alone, is probably a 'yankee', in the pejorative sense.

If you are talking to a big group, or to a couple of groups (like 2 couples), then you might say (or if you're kind of drunk) all y'all.

Controversy

There is also a long-standing disagreement about whether y'all can have primarily singular reference. While y'all is generally used in the Southern United States as the plural form of "you" a scant but vocal minority (for example, Eric Hyman[6]) argue that the term can be used in the singular. Adding confusion to this issue is that observers attempting to judge usage may witness a single person addressed as y'all if the speaker implies in the reference other persons not present: "Have y'all [you and others] had dinner yet?" (to which the answer would be, "Yes, we have", even though a single person has answered.)

H.L. Mencken argued that y'all or you-all cannot have a primarily singular reference, saying this

is a cardinal article of faith in the South. ... Nevertheless, it has been questioned very often, and with a considerable showing of evidence. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred, to be sure, you-all indicates a plural, implicit if not explicit, and thus means, when addressed to a single person, 'you and your folks' or the like, but the hundredth time it is impossible to discover any such extension of meaning.



– H.L. Mencken, The American language : an inquiry into the development of English in the United States, 1948, p.337
