I very definitely think of "y'all" as always plural, in spite of the hints of evidence to the contrary. But I use "all y'all" on occasion since "all y'all" is different from "some of y'all." Sort of like "all of us" or "we all." I don't think anybody would think of that as overkill just because "we" is already plural. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
