Now, let us ‘deconstruct’ “Y’all”
In the English Oxford Dictionary, ‘you’
“Used to refer to the person or people that the speaker is addressing”
Yeah, not so fast.
Southerners having none of that.
See? English English breaks down right there.
We (us southerners) need more.
We need ‘Y’all’
Ever’one needs “Y’all”
Sometimes… we need “All Y’all.”
(just to make certain)
And P.S. My good friend, Pain, over at http://exileonpainstreet.com/
once said, and I try to quote:
“If I see too many posts in My Reader… I get ‘overload’ and delete them all.”
He said that.
I admire that.
I, too, try, and usually fail, to read… ever’one.
But… I never delete.
I try to catch up.
