    Almost all native-born Southerners I've met make it clear that second-person singular is "you" and second-person plural is "you-all" (pronounced "y'all").   In fact, they insist that Yankee interlopers can be identified by their attempt to use y'all as a singular pronoun.

    Hmmm. I was once told that the proper southern american second person
    singular pronoun was "you all", and the proper southern american
    second person plural pronoun was "all you all". Did I get that right?

    Glad to see you using the proper, Yankee form of the second-person  
    plural pronoun!  In other parts of the U.S. it's you'all, sometimes  
    pronounced ya'll, but definitely containing more than one vowel in  
    that instance.
