The last three items applied to groups of various sizes and membership.I
don't recall that any single speaker ever used all items in the paradigm.
The educated speakers never used the last two forms; in fact they said
the forms "were ignorant." I always wanted to research the paradigm, but
I have never since encountered "southern" speakers who would admit the
existence of these forms.
The last one in the list is the only one I don't remember having heard
