Only in York County

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.
