Is there a difference between "y'all" and "you all"?

In my mind, yes.

I am a firm hater of "you people." Probably from Hertz days of hearing how "you people" (meaning me) are going to "fix this or else." Followed by other craziness which I shall detail another day. And I can get where "you all" can kind of get snotty too.

But y'all?

Sweet little "y'all"? As in "Would y'all like some iced tea?" or the plural "Do all y'all want iced tea?" No. Not snotty I don't care what these cranky yankees say.

And most of 'em walk around here lookin' like the Grapes of Wrath anyway, bless their hearts.

The very self-same folks who don't like Reba.

I'm not sure what the difference is, but, as I am now addicted to Yahoo "Answers", I've asked the question to the masses. I'll let you know what the rest of the world thinks about "Y'all" as soon as I get my answers!!
