As a native Okie, I must object to being left out of the count.
After all, not all the South is "deep South."
Probably I shouldn't say I don't count Oklahoma at all. I count it
as sort of an interesting peripheral area...
In your Oklahoma experiences, have you ever heard a singular "y'all,"
Jeutonne? Like a biologist friend who keeps chasing some kind of
elusive woodpecker without luck, I've been searching for a singular
"y'all" for a good while now. No luck so far.
