"Where are you at?"

Where are you at, WD? The expression is Where you at? The "are" is not needed.

Nah, CIV, that ain't it! It's "Where y'at?" And the answer is ... uh...

Well, maybe they ain't no answer in N'awlins no mo'.

Temp, glad I could conjure some fond memories of mom.

CIV, I tend to agree with you that the "are" was a bit excessive. And by the way, I'm at my computer at the moment.

Jeffery, the "y'ats" I believe are now merely the sound a cat makes whilst hacking up a hairball.
