How should I address all of you who read Only in York County?

Over the summer, I’d asked how you address a crowd of people.

Ewe, all?

You all?
You?
Y’all?
Yinz?
Youins?
Yous?

Or something else?

I was surprised that I hadn’t gotten more answers, and I’m really curious about what’s most commonly said in the area, so I’m asking again!

Mark over in Austria did help me out with his answer. “Ya’ll know now I use that a lot… hehe…,” he said.

And newer commenter Brian added one other suggestion I’d missed, “… And the classic ‘you guys’.”

So what do (all of) you think? I use “you guys” a lot, and I’ve certainly been guilty of saying “y’all” and “yous” at times. Don’t hit me.

About Joan Concilio

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!
