    Question Yous

    Hello,
    One of my neighbours met me and my wife in the shop and said "hi, yous" probably meaning "hi you two (s)".
    Is it correct?
    Thank you.

    Re: Yous

    Yes. It's slang, meaning "you" (normally plural).
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
