>When addressing a group, y'all is general (I know y'all) and is used to address the group as a whole, whereas all y'all is used to emphasize specificity of each and every member of the group ("I know all y'all.") The possessive form of Y'all is created by adding the standard "-'s".
"I've got y'all's assignments here.


Do you use "y'all" to informally address a group of people?

If not, what is your preferred second person plural pronoun?

I use y'all because I feel it is more functional in conversation than saying "you guys" or "you lot". Its feature of transforming into the possessive form makes it stand out as the superior pronoun.

Don't. Alabama and Mississippi are tied for having the worst white trash if you don't count 'Florida Man.'

I pretty much only use "you guys". If I say "y'all" I am trying to add a funny/silly tone to the conversation.

You could claim "you guys" is a single word too. It's more like "yuhguys" when said aloud, and posessive would be "yuhguyses".

What's yuhguyses favorite movie?

I use "you guys", but everyone else uses "y'all", even teachers. I used to never notice it until I payed attention once.

>>55092126
Listen to this guy: >>55092212

The people in those parts are nice, but they're shitty places to live. The climate is always depressing and the infrastructure is shit. I suggest moving to northern-central Georgia, where I live. All of the nice parts of the South with none of the bad.

Don't move to Alabama, Mississippi, or Louisiana. The people there are the trashiest of white trash for the most part

If you want to move to a Southern state, Georgia is probably your best bet.

Georgia has a lot of problems of its own. I suggest moving to Texas. You are technically in the South and enjoy the good food and culture but have none of the South's problems. Booming economy, good job market, relatively low crime rates, relatively educated, and modern cities.

Not the guy you're replying to but the guy who said coastal GA is nice

You have everything but the economy thing. Georgia's economy has actually been improving for the past few years. The entertainment industry is booming. Has the highest growth in the country and is only behind in size to CA and NY which isn't too shabby. I don't think it's possible to ever top CA but it's kicking ass with all the tax incentives.

>watch Archer or play Killing Floor 2 and you'll see what I'm talking about
>>
>>55092687
Entertainment is only one sector of a healthy economy. The Walking Dead is filmed in Georgia but I'd imagine the seasonal TV show production doesn't keep very many people in frappuccinos.
>>
>>55092764
again, I didn't say every other sector of the economy was 'booming' but they are all improving afaik

it's just I'm really surprised with how impressive our entertainment industry has become

What's wrong with "you lot?"

It sounds a lot more natural than "yaaawwwwlll"
>>
>>55093121
Now if your talking about Southern Florida then fair point but those denizens of the Panhandle definitely throw "yall" around.
>>
>>55093148
do you pronounce "all" as "aaaawwwwlll?"
>>
>>55093148
You all and you lot both make very little sense, but at least y'all is somewhat more useful and versatile.
>>
>>55092061
You guys, because I'm from the midwest.
>>
>>55093162
>muh panhandle
The panhandle is absolutely irrelevant. I'm sure California and Illinois have their fair share of nightmare rural/dindu zones, yet you would be insane to suggest that they represent the majority of the state. People seem a lot more eager to do that with Florida for some reason.

>>55093250
No, but that's how typical rednecks and midwesterners sound. John becomes 'Jaaawwwn" for example.

cubans aren't even a majority in little havana anymore for fuck's sake. This is precisely why people look down on your type- you clearly know nothing on the matter but still talk out of your asshole as if you did.

I'm your standard white guy and I've not even once heard "y'all" outside of tv and movies. But please tell me about how you know my state better than I do. Fucking idiot.

Or you could just begin your sentence by addressing the group and then continue to only say "you" because "yall", "youse" and "yinz" all sound equally retarded.

California = yee
New York = youse
Texas = y'all
>>
>>55095699
But "you" is both a singular and plural term. Would you seriously expect a teacher to say "I've got yall yinzes assignments here" instead of "I've got your assignments here"?
>>
>>55095323
Dats wicked awesome, Youse guys

They're the only ones that pronounce it right then.
>>
>>55095750
>you is both a singular and plural term
Maybe 500 years ago when people were still using "thou" in conversation.

You is nowadays not like Ihr where is can be used in both singular and plural contexts.

Plenty of professors I have had have used "yall" during lectures. You just perceive y'all to be some Southern affectation but it is really just a pronoun you hear and use. Germans are obsessed with efficiency, well y'all is an efficient pronoun.

ihr = y'all
euch = y'all
euer = y'all's
>>
>>55095899
That's not efficiency. Efficiency is being able to get through any kind of casual conversation in German using only two tenses through the utilization of indicator words. "Next weekend I visit my grandparents", perfectly valid conversational sentence in German.
>>
>>55095890
bombstonfags can't pronounce the letter "o", it's always an "a" for them

They can't even pronounce the name of their own city correctly.
