youngonce - A euphemism for elderly people, senior citizens -- which constructions themselves are euphemisms.    ED. The site's Senior Editor is also the most senior in age. He often asks, "Do you have a geezer discount?" And then revels in the frequent opportunity to enlighten the young whippersnappers who have no idea what "geezer" means. If they visited the PseudoDictonary, they would know.

e.g., The youngonce are no longer young in age, but they were once young.    ED. Many remain young at heart. I don't get it. Why do the youngonce get all the discounts they do? They've already used up far more than their share of the earth's resources.

youns - A derivative of "You ones" or "You-uns" a two syllable phrase shortened to a one syllable version. Commonly noted as Western Pennsylvanian slang. You'uns, you-uns. (ED. Growing up in Arkansas in the 1940s and 1950s, this construction was shunned by anyone who had any concept of "correct English." When I moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the 1960s, I found it in common use by college-educated Western Pennsylvanians -- several of whom had a nasty habit of making fun of my twangy Arkansas accent. Anyone who has ever known me probably has a good idea how I responded to being looked down on.)

e.g., Are youns ready?

yous - Plural of "you," widely used in Philadelphia. Youse. "Yous guys" or "youse guys." | Direct horizontal transmission from Gaelic into the dialect of English spoken in northwest England. The plural of "you." Peculiar to Liverpool, England, and some Gaelic speaking communities in Ireland. | Rather than "youse," this should be the plural of you. Yeh, I know, and joyously acknowledge, some of yous guys from Philadelphia already use yous rather than you or youse as a plural of you. The example is taken from one of those blogs that used up a good name for a blog and then went fallow, underconstriction.    Words containing "yous": youse, bayous, joyous, poyous, joyously, joyousness, joyousnesses. What the hell's a poyou?* That's South American armadillo.    The letter w can be represented as a word "doubleyou." The plural would be "doubleyous."    * I've now created the excuse I've been waiting for to tell one of my favorite old jokes -- in the form of a limerick, from http://kwick.me/wzcC:    Ethnologists up with the Sioux  Wired home for two punts, one canoe.  The answer next day  Said, "Girls on the way,  But what the hell's a 'panoe'?"   Rationale of the Dirty Joke: An Analysis of Sexual Humor says the joke originated in Pennsylvania in 1935. (In case it's not as obvious as I think it is, parents and guardians of minor children, and others who might be bothered by rude language, this is one of those links where you're likely to be led to coarse stuff.)

e.g., Hey. Any of yous wanna go out tonight? | Yous better be putting those fireworks in next door's letterbox and not mine. | "This time next year I will no longer be in the country and most of yous would know that it is highly likely for me to get out of here as my rent finishes, in March."
