    April almost said ya'll

    Heh - I warned her. She nearly dropped it at work. When she moved from Nebraska to here I told her it would happen eventually. The word is insidious. It worms its way into your subconscious and then just sneaks out so naturally. I told her she'd say it within 6 months - I think she might be ahead of schedule...

    Insidious, no.
    It's proper, dignified and natural, y'all.

    My sister married a guy from San Antonio - and the "y'all" claimed her a long time ago.

    I even have a picture of her doing some gardening in her cowboy hat.

    It fixes a deficiency in the English language. I would say southerners are on the cutting edge in the evolution of English.

    Another thing I find interesting is that in the US, it's mostly southerners who say "reckon", so I thought it was slang, but it's not, and it's commonly used by the Aussies I know (and I presume the English use it commonly too). So maybe the south is really more sophisticated when it comes to communication.

    linguistically, the southern accent is the closest to the accent of England, or at least that's what I've been told.

    I ALMOST said it. Almost doesn't count!



    Although, even almost saying it took me completely by surprise--I sat there and thought about what I almost just said.

    I can't wrap my brain around how little sense that phrase makes. If I ever say it, someone shoot me.

    Oh, no, no. It's the southern equivalent of "Just sayin', is all." The south was on to this way before the rest of the country.
