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. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
