South of the Mason-Dixon, it’s y’all. But in Steel City, it’s yinz—and don’t yinz forget it. The not-so-little ‘Burgh on the Ohio River has a rich history of Scots-Irish immigration, the source of the second-person plural term.
Evolving from the area’s 1800s “you ones,” yinz nowadays is more popular than ever thanks to a new generation spreading the trademark of Pittsburgh pride beyond the region. So keep it real, Steelers, and honor your eternal stomping grounds with this super-soft staple.
