Methinks that should be "You All" or "Y'all".

Given my location, were I to indulge in a colloquial form of plural
address, it would be Youns, pronounced Yuns to rhyme with Huns.
As that would fly over the head of 50% of the population, and
beneath the dignity of 49%, I will stick with the stodgy "All".

I haven't heard that pronounciation. One of my customers, from
somewhere in the south, ocassionally says "all". I have trouble
distinguishing his "all" from "oil". Both sound exactly the same to

My husband tries to speak without a southern accent

My wife is from Virginia, and even after 36 years, I still do not
entirely understand the various forms of y'all, and how they are
applied. There are at least six (6).

I only know the two that I mentioned. I must be culturally deprived.
