jawsuser is correct. "y'all" is singular, "all y'all" is plural.

I believe y'all refers to a general group.
All y'all means everyone.

Actual phrase: "Six of one, half a dozen of the other."

Meaning: When you are faced with a decision in which either choice has pluses and minuses that seem to cancel each other out, so that neither alternative has a clear advantage over the other.

Misstated phrase: "Six and a half dozen."

Meaning: 78.

I think I'd be most interested in six-and-a-half-dozen when it comes to cookies.

In the South, unless you're specifying a particular item (e.g. Diet Coke, Sprite, Mountain Dew) all carbonated beverages are referred to as coke. Unless you're pre-babyboomer-era, then you may refer to it as a co-cola.

In countries that use the metric system, McDonald's Quarter Pounder is instead called the McRoyal or some similar variant. I guess the 113.4 gram-er is too much of a mouthful.

I have to corroborate. We always just say, "Do you want a Coke?" "What kind?" They are all Cokes!

Maybe it's because Pepsi's from North Carolina, and Cheerwine has a strong following in the western part of the state.

I've never heard of that. What's it taste like? Is it a cola?

Cheerwine is a little bit like Dr. Pepper, but it always tastes kind of flat to me.

I've never noticed it to be flat, but I've probably also had it in more variety of containers than might be available in Virginia. Not a cola, just a very cherry flavor. I guess like Dr. Pepper if Dr. Pepper were only cherry. It's especially good as a float.

Ironically, there is a Pepsi distributor practically in my back yard. You wouldn't think I'd have to deal with flat Cheerwine locally.

First world problems!

I'm pretty sure Cheerwine is still independent. Unless the Pepsi distributor is contracted with them I don't think that would make a difference.

In Philly they call water "wooder".

So when I heard someone ask for "wooder ice" I though it was ice in a wood cup.

"Y'all" is already plural; it's a good substitute for the second person plural pronoun since in English the second person plural pronoun is identical to the first person plural pronoun. "All y'all" is used to refer to an entire group, in contrast with "some o' y'all" which would refer to only part of a group.

Agreed. And well put. Although, personally, I'd add the o' in with All as well - especially when the emphasis is on ALL.

Here's an example: "Are ALL o' y'all going in to the game, or are some o' y'all just gonna stay at the tailgate and watch it on TV?"
