“Y’all” is a superior plural pronoun. “Ain’t” is a perfectly good contraction. “Reckon” is a fantastic verb for describing when you are of an opinion. “Yonder” is the only word to describe that way over there.

@Thomas Agreed!

I'm a connecticut yankee but I consciously adopted "Y'all" into my vocabulary when I noticed how much it improves the clarity of communication. People who don't like it are just being snobs.

@nindokag Right?! What am I supposed to say You all"? "You guys"? no thanks.


@Thomas in England they say "you lot"! unless british TV has lied to me.
