We were in PA recently, you know, and I kept hearing this really bizarre speech anomaly. People were trying to pluralize the word “you!” It sounds like “use.”

“Are you’s going to go somewhere?”

“What time did you’s get here?”

“We’re glad you’s were able to come.”

The more I heard it the funnier it sounded! What are they thinking?!

Since then, I’ve heard a Hoosierville man (not sure if he’s a native or not) constantly use another variation of “you.” This one is even more bizzare. “You’uns!”

“What did you’uns do?” “How were you’uns able to go?”

You’s you’s you’uns you’uns! Oh for the pure and unadulterated Utopian mother tongue.
