The South is undeniably its own culture. We have a certain way of saying and doing things that, quite frankly, make life a lot better than it would be anywhere else. For example, we have the most versatile word in the English language: y’all. It’s a beautiful word you will only find in the South.
In fact, we’re so used to it that we don’t even recognize how often we use it. Y’all can be used in the conventional sense to describe a group of people – a shortened version of “you all.” But we also use it to get people’s attention, to describe situations and even have a silent y’all to be polite.
This video nails all the different versions we have of y’all, and y’all, it’s amazing.
