Learned something, I thought it meant you all.  As in all of the people being referred to.  How does one interpret the subset of y’all when a group is being referred to?

"Y'all" is singular.  "All Y'all" is plural.

Thank you for the explanation.

That's actually a redneck joke.  I think they use "y'all" and "all y'all" interchangeably.

Where I came from, "y'all" was exclusively plural.  Actually, in my part of West Virginia "yewall" was more commonly used.

Yeah I have never heard y'all used as a singular. Where I come from that is 'ya'. Granted some parts of the south are a bit more in love with "y'all" then others.

We just cannot seem to keep the topic on BoJo. Clearly he is no Trump.
If we can hit that bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!

At least they seem to have their priorities right and address the pressing issues of the day.

The country is facing incredible challenges and he is worried about titles, etiquette, and grammar?

I am pleased to learn that the old British spirit is back!!!  :bowler:

I'm embarrassed. I've been making the mistake of associating with you. It won't happen again. :)

Dear Mr. Johnson:

Due to the ongoing Brexit crisis, I ascertain Ms. Theresa May, M.P., Esq. was deemed no longer fit for purpose. I am pleased to learn that you yourself have taken on the job. Although one can only speculate what is to come, surely you will be equal to the task. As it happens my office is only a few hundred meters from 10 Downing Street. Hopefully, I can meet with you soon and, discuss plans to invest in the NHS. I note your concerns about costs but know you agree the NHS are so critical to Britain, so a refusal would cause great disappointment.

P.S. I I I I I

Admittedly, "I note/understand your concerns" is annoying.  :D

"I realize you made some noises with your mouth, or squiggles on paper, representing your completely worthless point of view; that realization will not stop me for a nanosecond from politely ignoring them, much as I would politely ignore a loud fart in company."
