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?" or "What do you all want?" Is one of them marked for emphasis, challenge, incredulity, etc. Ron Rabin Buffalo State College
