I have heard people in the Philadelphia area use "yous" at times...fair or not, it's perceived as being rather uneducated.

I thought "youse" was used mainly in parts of New York City....like Brooklyn, is it? Is there a distinct Brooklyn accent? Or a Bronx accent? Is Manhattan a bit "up market" then? :-)>>

"Youse" can be heard all over the North, (including MidWest) mostly be older or very rural people. I suppose therefore it is dying out. However, "Youse" is very common in NYC, New Jersey, and elsewhere in the North East, regarldess of age. I think NYC and Jersey probably say "Yaz" instead of "youse" which has a hard s sound.

So a New Yorker might scream "SHuddup the both a' yaz!"
