Yous/yousuns/yis my beloved <3
Memes aside I feel very invested in the Ulster English dialect in this Chilli's tonight
It has influences from both Ulster Scots and Irish, and 'yous' comes from the fact that Irish distinguishes between you singular and you plural, and honestly it makes so much sense in Ulster English. I'm addressing you by yourself, I'm addressing yous. Just add an s and now it's plural!!
Ulster Scots words in Ulster English that we were always told was slang:
Aul/oul: old
Aye: yes
Banjax: mess ('you've made a banjax of it')
Bout ye: how are you
Caul/coul: cold
Dead-on: OK ('bout ye?' 'aye, dead-on')
Eejit: idiot
Footer/futer: wasting time ('stop futerin' about' is a pretty standard sentence for a teacher to say, may also call them eejits)
Lug: ear
Quare/kwer: considerable/very, extended meaning of 'queer' (old meaning) (it's a quare day the-day)
The-day/the-night/the-marra: today, tonight, tomorrow
And of course, wee: small, also used as a general diminutive ('do you want a wee cup of tae', the tea is not necessarily small)
I'm still so cross about having all these great words seen as slang, my parents and grandparents use them a lot so I'm very familiar with their meaning but I don't really use them much myself
There's loads more on the Wikipedia page on Ulster English, check it out if you've got time :)

 ((Another note as I finish up a few drafts. I’m not sure where I’d ever put or use this but, I really like the idea that if Cú hadn’t died that day he would have taken up Scáthach’s place. If Conall had arrived in time. Weakened by the numerous broken geas’ and injuries he sustained, he chose to settle as a mentor in place of a warrior. It’s a ‘what if’ that could never really be... but there’s something comforting in thinking he could still be like his own mentor even if it’s in a different way.
