my latest pet peeve Posted on 2002-11-23 by Wohali Y’all is spelled y’all, not ya’ll. It’s short for “you all.” Thank you.
HAHAHAHA, i’ve never seen anyone write ya’ll. lol. how fucking annoying.
now, if only we could address the problem of people using “to grow” in any context other than biological.
“next year, we are going to grow our company tenfold, just after we capitalise on the synergies related to our recent vertically-integrated merger, along with the paradigm shift related to our new proactive CEO, and no longer will we guestimate our EBTIDA ratio.”
hahahahah, i’d like to see you try that here in atlanta :)
i use ya’ll (sorry!). but that’s more of a product of where i am. even better around here (and i’m guilty of it too!) is the all ya’ll! :D
see, i thought it was spelled that way since its a southern thing and they cant spell anyway.
are you sure it’s not short of ‘ya all’ — in which case the other spelling makes just as much sense?
just stirring up trouble here…
