If âyâallâ is applied to group consisting of one, âyâallâ still applies.

Seems both singular and plural to me.

Dude/s is a bit more flexible--I've recently learned that y'all is plural.

Any idea what the singular is if y'all?

I've always been fond of "y'all" (singular) and "all y'all" (plural).
