    Could y'all please start spelling y'all correctly?

    It gets thrown in as ya'll a lot, but that is wrong.

    The word is a contraction of "you all". The apostrophe replaces the missing letters "o" and "u".

    Therefore, it is correctly spelled... y'all.

    Y'alls' is incorrect. In this usage it is a plural possessive pronoun therefor y'all's is correct.
