    Hello From Tennessee

    Hello,

    I'm Roy, and thought that I would say hello and introduce myself. I've always wanted to learn the Russian language, and have had a strong interest in Russian history and culture. Currently, I work for GA State Parks. As of yet, I am a beginner and have a long way to go. I look forward to expanding my knowledge!

    Hi and welcome
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    How to say "y'all" in Russian would make my day...

    "y'all" = you all
    plural in Tennessee is "all y'all"
    I'm easily amused late at night...

    Хм... It's strange.
    In ABBY Lingvo:
    you-all (also y'all)
    you (used to refer to more than one person)
    1) You-all will about fill the aircraft — Вы все как раз и заполните этот салон самолета.
    but then...
    2)
    You-all are the most beautiful girl in the world! — Ты самая красивая девушка в мире!
    We haven't seen you-all in such a long time — Давно мы тебя не видели.
    So in the first case you-all = "все вы" or "вы все". But I don't see a difference between "you" and "you-all" in the second case.
