As a Southern Texan I solely believe the world y'all is the most proper term for usage. Why is y'all better, cause it is.

My mother told me her northern (Seattle cousins) laughed at her for saying y'all instead of you guys, which is inconceivable

Which do you prefer? Even though y'all is clearly better

Wow, such great logic.

The term "you all", abbreviated "y'all" is in fact grammatically correct. However, the term "shall" is also grammatically correct in first person terms. But since neither are social norms, they both get eyebrows raised.
