Who'd a'thunk?

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Which is incorrect

I'd a'thunk that "all y'all" is for specifying an absolute plural (all-encompassing), sort of you "every one of you (is going down!)".
But it's fascinating. BTW, now that you're explaining, is it possible to say "y'alls" like I did or was that just completely wrong?
Anyway, I still like to use y'all when I wanna talk to more than one, but not necessarily all of the potential recipients
