Please explain where you got that idea. I’m certainly not illiterate. Y’all is a very good word, and it’s used all across the south. It is only a contraction of “you all.” It fits into the paradigm scheme of verb conjugation as the second person plural.1st person singular – I2nd person singular – you3rd person singular – he, she, it1st person plural – we2nd person plural – y’all3rd person plural – theyExamples – I go, you go, he goes, we go, y’all go, and they go.Not only is the word acceptable in a geographic area, it is becoming more and more popular on television and the movies. Believe me when I tell you that it has nothing whatever to do with one’s education level.
