He found that singular > y'all really did exist there---34.4% of his SOD respondents admitted to > using y'all singular, while 71.8% said that they would use y'all plural; I had to miss Guy's plenary address that night, but isn't it true that he has not actually found any instances of unambiguous singular y'all -- that what he has found is people who say that they do use it? What people claim to do or not do in speech is sometimes quite different from what they really do. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
