What is yall short for?

You all

Yall is a common abbreviation for "you all" that people (especially in the Southern U.S.) use to refer to a group of people. You may see it online and in texts, and you might hear it spoken with a southern accent or drawl.

For example, your friends may be trying to figure out where they should eat, and you text, "ill eat anywhere yall pick so can you do it already? im starving!!!" Or, you might be a tourist in Alabama and a resident asks, "Y'all aren't from around here, are you?" You may also see people spell yall as "y'all" (and "ya'll" if spelled incorrectly).
