Southern 2nd person plural pronoun. Most concise and easily distinguished. Despite the assurance of some emails that have been passing around, "y'all" is plural. Only an absolute idiot would use it as a singular pronoun.
Where are y'all going?

A southern contraction of the term, "you all."
And mind you, that we southerners get very offended when stupid people think anyone who says it is a hick. Shut the hell up.
"Hey, what are y'all doing tonight?"

The best way to address two or more people. Better than: you guys, youse guys, and you all! Yes, I live in Southern Alabama, and yes, I attended Harvard!
Please shut up, y'all!!!

The only way to address two or more people. Y'all sounds a heck of a lot better than youse guys and is more efficient as well. Only say it if you're from the south unless you want to get laughed at because yankees don't know how to pronounce it right. Ya'll is spelled incorrectly and "all y'all" is perfectly legitimate. Never use y'all to refer to one person--it makes things really confusing.
He was fixing to teach y'all a lesson.
I was wondering what all y'all had in mind.
