Example: *teacher informs students they have homework* “a-DII!”

yoi: /yoi/ exclamation. 1. one word expression that is used when something really awesome or something incredible happens.
Example: *someone makes a basket* “YOI!

Example: I trash this?
Side note: This was one of the first things to become a part of my daily vocabulary because, to me, trash had been a noun or only used as a verb to destroy property.
