Okay, Sweetheart, I'm the one with the thick head? lol. You're too cute.
I understand that there are different pronunciations of things, but that is because some people do not know how to talk correctly.
Congratulations on your English Major. Apparently, that doesn't mean you know how to spell also.

And as to some wise words from /my/ boyfriend, who has also lived in Texas his entire life, "H-TOWN REPRESENT, MOTHAFUCKA!!! AAAHHHHHHHHH!!!"

Oh, by the way, this is Spero. I'm on Ssendz's computer and forgot that his name was logged on, not mine.


What I fail to understand is why the two of you find the spelling of a non-word so important, as to get sooo condescending toward eachother.

Ok, I tried to read the two pages of this thread, but I had to stop after the first few posts. This is the most retarded argument ever. This is why girls need men -- somebody has to slap the shit out of them when they start to get so petty and immature with one another.


Girls can be so stupid sometimes.

Ok. So tonight in bwl before I had to leave, a discussion was made on ya'll vs y'all. I was unable to explain more on this, due to me having to leave! Ya'll, and y'all are both accepted spellings of it. Same as pecan, pecon. And a million other words.

Ya'll

Slang contraction for the 2nd person plural pronoun, utilized amongst the indigenous populations of the southern continental United States.

Origin: Often incorrectly attributed to the contraction of "you + all," the word actually originated from the fusing of "ya + all." The kind of fella who would say ya'll for the first time would not be enunciating a clean and crisp "you" in his daily speech. "You" wasn't in his spoken vocabulary, but "ya" was. Now, try to say "ya all." It is actually not easy to do as two separate words. To say it with a normal cadence, it already almost sounds like ya'll, but with the slightest stutter. "Ya all" quite naturally slips into the familiar pronoun we all use. Ya + all = ya'll. When you look at it that way, the placement of the apostrophe after the "a" makes sense. Alternately, you + all = y'all. However, the ya + all transition more naturally illustrates the origin of "ya'll." "You all" is cumbersome, although that is usually how yall is explained to uninitiated Yankees, whose experience with "ya" is often limited. "You all" just doesn't lead the the inevitable ya'll that "Ya all" does. However, y'all is an accepted alternate spelling.


Y'all

Southern 2nd person plural pronoun. Most concise and easily distinguished. Despite the assurance of some emails that have been passing around, "y'all" is plural. Only an absolute idiot would use it as a singular pronoun.





I am from the south and the correct term is "Y'all"

Nothing about the south is correct.

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.
