comment Should “ya” have an apostrophe? “Doin”? Etc
Interesting distinction; I'm not sure about the apostrophe in the first case. The more I think about it the less I know. Ya know?

@ThePopMachine Hm. How about "kind'f" or "kind've" then? That's one aspect I hadn't thought've.

Is this codified somewhere I could refer to? I know that's the "rule" for most contractions/etc, I'm just wondering if it's similar for other constructs.

@HotLicks Why for "doing" and not "you"? Trying to nail down if there are any particular rules/norms for apostrophe application.

comment Idiom for “just because you give something a different name, it doesn't change what it is”
I don't care for the examples given. You're making a blanket assumption that what follows is inherently insulting, racist, or disrespectful, and I don't buy it. As pointed out in the possible dupe the responsibility for the perceived issue isn't only on the speaker.
