Community made Fact Card:

English has no second person plural, so a number of regional dialects have covered the word, such as "you guys", "y'all", "you lot", "yinz", "youse", and even "all y'all".

Well technically the singular 2nd person thee and thou have stopped being used, so it's the singular that missing.
(Although you occasionally hear someone use thyself.)

or any plural term works, you do not need to qualify it by putting a you before hand. People, gentlemen, fartwits, etc.

Thank you for spelling "y'all" correctly. It's a contraction of "you all" with the apostrophe filling in for the 'ou' letters in "you". It gives me physical pain to see it spelled "ya'll".

1 Sheep, 2 Sheep, Black Sheep, Blue Sheep.

... I suspect the blue one/s was/were white before being left in the sheep-dip too long.

Sorry was this about people? ;p
