guys" into a pronoun, and as such it can then be made possessive. So,
"your-guys's" would be pronounced [jrgajz@z], where @ represents a
schwa, but sometimes it's pronounced [jrgajz]. The double possessive
is optional. You can say "you-guys's", "your-guys" or "your-guys's".
However, the expression must contain at least one possessive form, so
using "you-guys" as a possessive pronoun is not generally allowed.
