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.
Southerners need ‘Y’all’
Now ever’one needs “Y’all”
Sometimes… we need “All Y’all.”
(just to make certain there is no ambiguity)
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: his truthfulness.
I too, try and usually fail, to read… ever’one.
But… I never delete.
I just try to catch up.
