What is Yalling?


Yalling is the act by which a non-southern person offends someone from the southern United States by teasing their speech patterns. Deliberate or not, yalling implies that the southerner is acting like an "ignorant redneck" which is an image many educated people from those states consciously try to avoid.

I was talking to my boyfriend from NYC the other night, and he yelled "y'all" into the phone just to get on my nerves. Luckily he's good enough in bed to forgive the occasional yalling, but when will they learn that it's just not funny?
