I'm curious about the "y'all" and "you all" pairs. Would someone who
speaks/lives in a dialect area where "y'all" and "you all" coexist, comment
on which is marked, if either is marked, and for what purpose.
I have in mind a pair like:
"What do y'all want?"
"What do you all want?"
Is one of them marked for emphasis, challenge, incredulity, etc.
