In American English, quite informally, one will hear different words or phrases for the personal pronoun “you” in its plural form. Perhaps it’s a way of making sure the listener understands you mean second person plural, not singular. Among other words/phrases, some people will say “you all”, “y’all”, “yous”, “yuse”, “yins”, “you guys”, “yumob” in addition to “you”. When there is such a variety of words with the same meaning, there must be a reason why you use one and not the other. Is one’s choice related to:
- social status?
- educational background?
Or could it be that they are really no markers and people will use one word one time, and another word another time, for no evident reason?
