"You" in its plural form. Originated in the south but has equivalent counterparts in other languages such as German.
For instance, in German one might say :
"Wie geht's mit ihr?"
or in English:
"How's it going with y'all?"
In German Ihr is an official part of speech...something to consider! People who denouce the term "Y'all" are just hatin' on the more enlightened!
Oh yeah, and "Ya'll" is completely wrong. NEVER use it.
Y'all better come hit this!

The correct spelling for the commonly misspelled word, y'all. The word originates in the south-eastern United States and is a contraction formed from the words 'ya' and 'all,' the 'ya' being the short-form of you. The apostrophe is placed after the a because in contractions, letters are removed from the second word, and thus, y'all is gramatically incorrect, leaving ya'll as the proper method of spelling the word.
Will ya'll quiet down for a moment please?

I'll see ya'll later.

Ya'll is the spelling of the contraction of the word ya + all. Southern post civil war news papers support this. Northern newspapers would spell the word as y'all as an insult.

The incorrect spelling of the contraction "y'all." In English, we use the apostrophe to replace letters when squishing two or more words together. In the case of y'all, the apostrophe replaces "ou" in "you" or "a" in "ya," depending on whether or not you can pronounce "you" correctly (you all or ya all). The sound of "all" does not change.

"Ya'll" would more correctly be a contraction for "ya will," and it sounds like "yuh-ull" because ya sounds like "yuh" and "'ll" sounds like "ull." In this case, the "ya" sound does not change.
You all:
Are y'all coming with us tonight?

Ya will:
Ya'll be sorry if ya do that after ya were told not to.
Ya'll be lucky if ya don't get a whippin' for doing it anyway.
