Translation Tuesday: Y’all, Take Two

May 7, 2013

I mentioned early on that I love the word y’all. My English professor freshmen year even said it was okay to use in papers. Now one of the (many) things that drives me batty is when I see people spell it incorrectly. It is a contraction of “you” and “all” the apostrophe goes between the combining of those two words (so the “y” and the “a”, not the “a” and the “l”). If you are going to use the language of the American South, at least spell it right.
