Does anyone else use regional words?
#25
Backache,

It's y'all .. just as it looks. A contraction of you and all. That is why the appostrophe comes after the y and not after ya. Take the y sound from you and put it in front of all, it is one syllable, not 2 as many try to make it. Sounds best when you have an actual Southern accent to go with it. Which I am slowly but surely acquiring.

I belong to a forum called USADeepSouth.. a writer's forum. There are several teachers on the forum and man oh man, y'all don't want to come in posting ya'll. The english lessons start pouring out. It's kinda funny in a way.

MJC,

I know several teachers that will be happy to know that you are now spelling y'all correctly ~LOL~.
