Not saying that at all, it's purely contextual.

is this like when black american vernacular english assigns a different meaning to "he be workin' " (he's at work) and "he workin' " (he's got a job)

disclaimer: I got that from reading Steven Pinker and it's possible I have it backward
Yeah, no idea there. I'll have to axe my black friend.

I have Florida cousins. Y'all is used when addressing one or more people. Alla Y'all is generally used only when exasperated with a group of people (for example at a picnic or bbq when trying to get people to assemble for food but they keep milling around gabbing).

I have become a fan of "y'all two". When addressing a large group of people "I need all y'all to make sure to clean up at the end of your shift, and y'all two to lock the doors after everyone leaves."
Do they laugh?

You're just adding extra syllables and words completely unnecessarily. Why would you do such a thing?

Read my posts with the following stupid accent: Southwest Atlantica
As children my Jersey step-kids could not distinguish-ably pronounce full, fool and fuel.
All 3 sounded like "fool", which I think is more common in childhood than not.
Thankfully they learned their proper pronunciation, but still have NJ and NY accents.

y'all need to shut up and listen!


That does seem like it would gather more attention, and makes it slightly funny, so it wouldn't be rude

Read my posts with the following stupid accent: Circum-polar region
This story reminds me of our remote communities, and how they bring education to them.

Usually, the pattern is thus: the government and education administrations advertise high wages, wild adventure and bringing valuable education to needy communities.

Young teachers come, try it a few years, but overall, once their student loans are paid (or they get a job in the south) they leave.

What this does to the quality of education offered in those communities is remarkable.

I remember reading that the head administrator of the Beaufort Delta Education Council said she had to yell at her teen every morning to get him up, and off to school.

Friends did it, and were awed that the 'on the land' classes were segregated. Girls could not participate in parts of the classes (fishing, for example) and if menstruating, were not allowed to step over the nets.

They were also quick to leave, I think because they loved kids, and found it too difficult to do what they considered good work. Just to give you an idea of how difficult, one of them is now in her preferred job - looking after teens who have autism and are mostly non-verbal. In a big, busy city. If you don't know that kind of work, I would say it is among the most demanding of teaching jobs.

If you don't count work in those communities, I guess.

One of my daughters did the last year of her high school in Kugluktuk, NU. She had already acquired her academics, but a weird spot left her needing one English credit. She enjoyed the 'leadership' program offered, which had a lot of 'on the land' activities, and because she was new to the area, she did learn LOTS (aside from the meaningless English credit). Her performance in the English class was laughable, but still earned her high marks because the teachers are so desperate to count one in the 'win' column.

Fuck I'm glad I don't work around educators anymore...
