From One Southern Girl To The Whole Internet

From one Southern girl to the whole internet:

A contraction is made when two individual words are put together where the apostrophe takes the place of the missing letter(s), right? So why do some of y’all have so much trouble with the spelling of the word “y’all?”

You all. What letters do you take out when you put those two words together? The “o” and the “u” in “you.”

You – ou + ‘ + all = y’all.

In case that didn’t make sense:

THE APOSTROPHE TAKES THE PLACE OF “OU” MAKING IT “Y’ALL,” not ya’ll.

The things Southern girls get fired up about…y’all will have to excuse me.
