RE: ?Computerworld? article

In the north we say 'you guys'.

Except in Brooklyn where they say "youse guys'.

        Rob,

        Please come here (Richmond, VA) and try to explain that to all the
        Southerners here who think that "y'all" is singular and "all y'all"
is
        plural.  My freshman year RA quite succinctly explained that "y'all"
        corrects one of the most severe failings of the English language (at
least
        in the minds of Southerners), the fact that "you" is both singular
and
        plural.

        Mike E.

        You're wrong.  A true southerner never uses y'all in the singular.
