texas talk
 
ok, my friend is from texas, she said the proper way to spell y-all is ya-ll we said no. she said were not from texas so please if your from texas help me out. its y-all right?

Actually, it's spelled "y'all" with an apostrophe, not a hyphen. Y'all is a contraction of "you" and "all". Ya'll would be a contraction of some word starting with "ya" and "all".

The only people from Texas that I've known who've spelled it ya'll have been idiots.

ok we were both wrong.thanx for the reply.

unless it's plural then it's "all y'all"
as in "are all y'all fixin to do the Ride for the Roses?"

I thought the plural was "y'all all" as in "y'all all have to come over some time."

I thought the plural was: y'all'ns

And as for whether or not it's proper english, those rules were thrown out long ago.
Haven't you heard? You can't hold people to rules anymore!

Not "Haven't you heard?", EventServices...it is "Ain't you heard?"! (Oh, and we in Texas usually say "cain't" instead of "can't", too. And some even use a double negative in your last sentence to make it "You cain't hold people to rules no more!"))

At least he asked how to spell "y'all",and not how we say S.O.B.

Stacey 09-30-05 10:21 AM
