See also: y'all
- (chiefly Southern US) Plural form of you.
1887, Thomas Nelson Page, In ole Virginia: or, Marse Chan, and other stories, page 160:
- Dyah dee come! Now watch 'em smile. All y'all jes stand back. Heah de one you lookin' for.
- All yall is used in the Southern United States when a speaker wishes to include everyone being addressed. Yall may refer to an indefinite set of members of a group, but all yall definitively includes everyone in the group.
- Like y'all (see that entry's usage notes) and most other second-person plural pronouns, all yall (and yall all, which mirrors e.g. they all) can be said to one individual with an implied plural "and your group".
