you’ve got to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything. and for that reason, i’m standing up for the word y’all.
forget political platforms….health plans, taxes, or social security. MY platform is to save america from the use of any term referring to the plural form of “you” other than “y’all”.
it’s like biscuits with butter. tea with ice. and coke with peanuts. it just makes sense. it’s like comfort food for the southern vernacular.
and i’m pretty sure my overton high school english teachers (god bless their hearts. actually, god bless all my teachers hearts), mrs. brand and mr. gonzalez, both used the term y’all. they were both quite sticklers when it came to the english language so therefore, it MUST be grammatically correct. and even if it’s not, i declare that it should be.
you gotta fight. for your right. to speak twang! and i’m starting with this…
loud and proud, y’all. no y’all left behind. keep y’all in the classrooms. just say y’all. y’all. or yall. with or without the apostrophe. either way, it just feels right.
that’s all i have to say about that.
