Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

In Scotland, it would certainly be "yous" - exactly the same
concept and usage as "y'all"

Having a 2nd person pronoun which is the same in singular and
plural can lead to misunderstandings, so, aye, it's handy,

In parts of Illinois that would be *yous* or *you's* -- not sure about the
grammar, but I know it comes in handy when anyone wants to know when yous
guys are gonna get here.
