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…

#24

darned right you did.

#25

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”.

#26

youse shudder

As bad as “I’m going to get me a coffee.”
and
“I don’t got no…”

l0l. <----woot filters s-u-c-k

“this is a funny comment.” How is that?

#28

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

I ain’t got no use for such violence.

#35

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.

so Mencken says that one out of a hundred people in the south is a yankee who doesn’t know how to properly use it; alternatively, 1:100 in the south is so stupid or drunk they don’t use it right.

sounds right.

As one of my students would say (seriously), thankfully 1 out of 100 people is only 5% of them…

Only one has demonstrated a noted lack on converting fractions to percentages… there may very well be more…
