Not trying to be a nit-picker but I am wondering if there is a tacit approval or rule that specifies the use of "you" in places where "your" would be proper. Is this a shortcut? or what. I am ok with it but it does fail when used in place of you're.

Having just unintentionally typed that in a post (since corrected) I would attribute it to a typo in many cases.

I thought that was spelled, "ya'll." Or is that an east coast southern thing.

To answer the OP's question..I think it's more a typo...I catch it even in my own typing.

All y'all take note:

"Y'all, sometimes spelled as "Ya'll", "Yawl", or "Yaw", and archaically spelled "You-all" (from the Wiki-dickie)
============================================
Southern women appreciate their natural assets:
___________________
Clean skin.
A winning smile.
That unforgettable Southern drawl.
___________________
Southern women know their manners:

'Yes, ma'am.'
'Yes, sir .'
'Why, no, Billy!'
___________________
Southern women have a distinct way with fond expressions :

'Y'all come back!'
'Well, bless your heart.'
'Drop by when you can.'
'How's your Momma?'
___________________
Southern women know their summer weather report:

Humidity
Humidity
Humidity

___________________
Southern women know their vacation spots:

The beach
The rivuh
The crick
___________________
Southern women know the joys of June, July, and August:

Colorful hi-heel sandals
Strapless sun dresses
Iced sweet tea with mint
___________________
Southern women know everybody's first name:

Honey
Darlin'
Shugah
___________________
Southern women know the movies that speak to their hearts:

Fried Green Tomatoes
Driving Miss Daisy
Steel Magnolias
Gone With The Wind
___________________
Southern women know their religions:

Baptist
Methodist
Football
___________________
Southern women know their country breakfasts:

Red-eye gravy
Grits
Eggs
Country ham
Mouth-watering homemade biscuits with momma's homemade jelly
___________________
Southern women know their cities dripping with Southern charm:

Chawl'stn
S'vanah
Foat Wuth
N'awlins
Addlanna
___________________
Southern women know their elegant gentlemen:

Men in uniform.
Men in tuxedos
Rhett Butler
___________________
Southern girls know their prime real estate:

The Mall
The Country Club
The Beauty Salon
___________________
Southern girls know the 3 deadly sins:

Having bad hair and nails
Having bad manners
Cooking bad food
___________________
More Suthen-ism's:

Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you don't 'HAVE' them, you 'PITCH' them.
___________________

Only a Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc., make up'a mess.'
___________________

Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of 'yonder.'
___________________

Only a Southerner knows exactly how long 'directly' is, as in: 'Going to town, be back directly.'
___________________

Even Southern babies know that 'Gimme some sugar' is not a request for the white, granular sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl in the middle of the table.
___________________

All Southerners know exactly when 'by and by' is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well.
___________________

Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a neighbor who's got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad. If the neighbor's trouble is a real crisis, they also know to add a large banana puddin'!
___________________

Only Southerners grow up knowing the difference between 'right near'and 'a right fer piece.' They also know that 'just down the road' can be 1 mile or 20.
___________________

Only a Southerner, both knows and understands, the difference between a redneck, a good ol' boy, and Po white trash.
___________________

No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn.
___________________

A Southerner knows that 'fixin' can be used as a noun, a verb, or an adverb.
___________________

Only Southerners make friends while standing in lines... And when we're 'in line,' we talk to everybody!
___________________

Put 100 Southerners in a room and half of them will discover they're related, even if only by marriage.
___________________

In the South, y'all is singular, all y'all is plural.
___________________

Southerners know grits come from corn and how to eat them.
___________________

Every Southerner knows tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, and coffee are perfectly wonderful; that red eye gravy is also a breakfast food; and that fried green tomatoes is NOT a breakfast food.
___________________

When you hear someone say, 'Well, I caught myself lookin',' you know you are in the presence of a genuine Southerner!
___________________

Only true Southerners say 'sweet tea' and 'sweet milk.' Sweet tea indicates the need for sugar and lots of it -- we do not like our tea unsweetened. 'Sweet milk' means you don't want buttermilk.
___________________

And a true Southerner knows you don't scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway. You just say, 'Bless her heart', and go your own way.
___________________

To those of you who are still a little embarrassed by your Southerness: Take two tent revivals and a dose of sausage gravy and call me in the morning. Bless your heart!
___________________

And to those of you who are still having a hard time understanding all this Southern stuff ... bless your hearts, I hear they are fixin' to have classes on Southernness as a second language!
___________________

And for those that are not from the South but have lived here for a long time, all y'all need a sign to hang on y'all's front porch that reads 'I ain't from the South, but I got here as fast as I could.'

Southern girls know men may come and go, but friends are fahevah !

Now...... Shugah, send this to someone who was raised in the South or wish they had been!

If you're a Northern transplant, bless your little heart, fake it! We know you got here as fast as you could.
