Oh my HELL Amanda!

After vehemently discussing with you the aggravation of typos, I discovered that...ah, GOD I don't even want to admit it...

I spell it like this.

"YA'LL"

*screeeeeeeeeeeam*

Can I ask ya'll, what ya'll think is wrong, with spelling ya'll, y-a-'-l-l?
Hell, I do, and I'm not even American!

After looking it up on Wikipedia, it is spelled several different ways.

HOWEVER...lol...

Me and Amanda's arguement is this.

If "ya'll" is short for "You all,"
the apostrophe should be between the "y" and the "all."

Hay, to experience a Heather and Amanda moment is kinda like peeking into a circus tent :) :) :)

The fact that you were cooking dinner, feeding birds, chasing children, drinking beer, changing diapers, and trying to proof-read a menu (with me doing the reading) does not excuse this....geez Heather, you better tighten up! My favorite alphadictionary.com says that it is "yall", which is just so wrong. Dr. Goodword, the sitemaster, grew up in NC, and should be ashamed of himself.

More fun to add to this post -- in Louisiana, the comment is "all uh y'all." As in -- "Are all uh y'all coming or what??"

How about THAT for incorrect English?
