I agree with Don that the idea of singular "y'all" seems totally alien
to my Southern experience of 50 years (except when used by yankees
pretending to be y'all-users). I realize, of course, that my feelings
about it are unscientific. I also realize that Guy Bailey has found
evidence of singular y'all in the Southwest recently. If it were just
about anybody other than Guy, I would be convinced that the tokens he
has found aren't really singular.
