    ya - Definition from Longman English Dictionary Online

    "Ya" means "you" and "Y'all" is a contraction of the words "you" and "all".

    ***NOT A TEACHER***

    Last night I saw … = Last night is a definite finished time. We can't use present perfect here since the action is completed.

    Re: Ya and etc.

    Y'all is used as the plural second person in many spoken dialects, particularly in the south of the US.

    English formally lacks any distinction between a singular "you" and a plural "you," but various dialects make up for this shortcoming by using words like "y'all" or "youse."
