    in malaysian, it means "oh Wow!" or if said in another tone, it could mean "you twit!" in not so many words.. what would your typical city / town / village "oh wow" be said in? slang / argot / whatever....

    c'mon let's have some verbal coloda shall we?

    I use that word, only I write it as ayooooooo, hehehe
    I didnt know it was a real word.
    Some friends of the family used to come to australia and stay with us on occasion, they were from Malaysia, and the boy, when ever something went wrong he would always say ayooooo, but I guess it is spelled ahyo. Anyhow it stuck and I use the expression from time to time.

    Examples:
    "@#$%!!!" = Wow/cool...
    "Oh @#$%" = Oh no/that's bad...

    duh... eh? cursing? in Malay or chinese, or Indian, or even french, it sounds terrible, but I can imagine it in german or irish... the way the words just drool out of the mouth, not to mention the body language :p

    LOL... i was at a bookstore just now, wanted to buy a book, but everywhere I turned, I am prompted to see books written in german. That is really odd!! Finally went to the Language section, and decided to get German for Dummies. I was shocked when I saw the price. Exhorbitant. Its cheaper to buy online these days, and from Amazon.de or dotcom...

    German? What am I thinking??
