    Let me rephrase that. 'Which "proper" English lacks'. Then again, very little except professional speeches and papers uses "proper" English anymore. Here in Texas, even a high level professional speech can contain the word "y'all" with a second thought by the audience.
    I know the New Jersey area has "youse" and "youse guyse", and I think the Midwest uses "all you." It's a vernacular, as opposed to official version.

    I watched my colleague (skinny fat and on daily meds for migraines) eat 2 iced doughnuts, 3 ginger biscuits, a twix and 3 rice cakes at work today (plus whatever she had for lunch). Her mum keeps telling her she should cut her fat intake!

    Most days she eats 'healthy' muesli bars (2 or 3), she says she'd do anything to not take migraine meds- this apparently does not include facing up to her awful diet.

    In the Pittsburgh area, the vernacular is pronounced "youns" ("you ones," as opposed to "you all"), but the way it comes out sounds more like "yinz." Pittsburghers often refer to themselves as "yinzers."

    One of those annoying "suggested posts" on my Facebook feed today is from Yoplait. It's a meme: "Sorry for what I said when I was hungry." Made me think immediately of this thread. Yeah, you will bite people's heads off... if you eat Yoplait and wait two hours. EAT REGULAR FOOD. Geez.

    Okay... I'll ask. What is CW? (If it is not clean I prefer to remain in the dark.)

    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    in my neck of the woods-

    y'all - singular
    y'all - plural
    all y'all - singular
    all y'all - plural
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    Where I grew up (Rhode Island), you is singular and plural, both, and you just have to figure it out depending on context. Up there, anyone saying "y'all" would get some pretty strange looks.
