Is Ye a word?

    Here you are using 'yere' as a version of 'ye/you are' or 'you're' but the argument being made was that 'yere' was a plural of 'your'.

    Maybe it would be a possible single word alternative to the 'your' 'you're' and associated plurals confusion, in reality it would just be adding a further word to the mix.

    Yere proposals in relation to alternatives that would provide more clarity to yere written communications are interesting. Maybe ye might consider adopting cork colloquialisms instead.




  • My daughter was watching some faff about cake making on Netflix (Sugar Rush) and I happened to overhear a line from one of the judges which was like nails down a chalkboard..."Y'all's cake tastes sooo gooood".

    While I can accept "y'all" as a valid contraction of you all, y'all's cannot be the possessive case...pass the gin please.

    Y'all is an American colloqulism.
    Ye is what we use in these parts

    It was being spoken by an American on an American program, so I had no issue with that..."y'all's" ground my gears. (As would an Irish person saying y'all in a non-ironic way).
