When talkin' to a southerner or redneck, remember that "Ya'll" is singular, "All of Ya'll" is plural.  Jack

Although I live in Texas now, I'm originally from New England.  So, I qualify to request a little equal time with the following conversation, typical of the Boston area.  Translation follows:

Jeet?
No, Jou?
No, S'go.

Translated:

Have you eaten yet, sir?
No, in fact I haven't.
Actully, I haven't eaten either, so shall we proceed?

This is funny.

My kids and I give my wife a lot of crap about her southern drawl. One day she actually said a complete sentence in one word. Actually, it was mostly just a bunch of consonants all strung together. Not many vowels in it.

What was scary was we both understood what she said!  Cheesy

If that's so, Jack, what tense is "Yu'un's"?

Bob, It's a regional term from Missouri and Northern Arkansas, spelt, "You'uns."

My stepdad has used it from time imemmorial. Although he's only a few years older than you, (he's in his late 80's), he hails from the Show Me State, and as we like to tell him, his home town was "Constipation, Missery." He grew up looking at the used grass end of a fresh grass intake mammal.

That might be the origin, Dallas, but they sure use it a lot around here in the Mountains.

The couple who bought our former home are now friends and occasionally I get a note from her.  She writes beautiful poetry of a Christain nature and when she writes a note she uses yu'un's.  It ain't cultrue shock..it's just the way the mountain folks are.

Just a side note. Saw a TV show a while back that traced these speech patterns back to England; where they still speak the same way.

You shouldn't believe everything you hear on TV!

Jeremy

PS. Actually, whilst I genuinely don't recognise any Anglo Saxon in any of these speech patterns, there are certainly some strong parallels with the West Indian language and dialect; in the fairly recent past (ie. post war) there have been strong West Indian communities in some areas of Britain, although those communities are disappearing now through intermarriage and reduced immigration.

Guy's, Guy's Guy's,

That Dialect is Derived From Rocky Mountain Water......That's a Fact...Not Fiction!...I think....

On a recent trip to Kentucky, I was drinking some local water and I instantly started saying "Ya'll" as I was choking on the worm....
