4. I lived in the South for over 20 years and I can tell you in my experience...

"y'all" is plural, invariably. As Lewis Grizzard said: "For some unknown reason, Northerners think Southerners use 'y'all' and 'you all' in the singular sense. Northerners will giggle and ask, 'So where are you all from?' I answer by saying, 'I all is from Atlanta'."
