    This pronoun is part of the slang portion of the Pittsburgh Regional Dialect. It started out as a plural form, you'uns but was generalized. This word is generally considered to be slang in the geographical area in which it is used and people using it are disparagingly referred to as "yinzzers." See also "henna."
