BTW: "Y'all" may be short for "you all" but "you all" is never used by any

self-respecting Southerner.

Oh dear. I use "you all" as often as I use "y'all." Always have. Probably

always will.

Ugly question: How much effect does television have on our dialect?

Probably none at all except in vocabulary.
