    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    Y'all- Redneck version of yankee youse (Used in addressing two or more people or referring to two or more people, one of whom is addressed). I.E.-Would ya'll mind a short grammar course? Come over here youse.

    And- used as a function word to indicate connection or addition especially of items within the same class or type; used to join sentence elements of the same grammatical rank or function. Represented by the symbol & .

    At- used as a function word to indicate presence or occurrence in, on, or near <staying at a hotel> <at a party> <sick at heart>. Represented by the symbol @.

    That's about all I can think of @ the moment, & youse wordsmiths can add from here.

    I always hated that "rule" 'cause it is not always true...as in "their".
