look up any word, like thot:
1. Originally it denotes someone from New England.

It is now used in reference to those from the United States, since "American" isn't actually a nationality, and people didn't want to needlessly insult those from North and South America by equating them with those from the US.

2. To pull something.
1. "Bloody hell! We've got to rescue the Americans from all those Yanks!"

2. "Bloody hell! Don't Yank my doodle like that!!"

1.Short for "Yankee"

2.An American from the NORTHERN United States,not a term for all Americans like most British people seem to think.Southerners are called Rebs or Rednecks.Most of the stereotypes posted here by the British pertain to Southerners too,most of us Yanks are pretty liberal.The north and south USA are almost like 2 different countries (they nearly were) and the rest of the world doesn't seem to notice that.You won't find many fat rednecks in Vermont or Rhode Island.
George W Bush and Britney Spears are NOT Yanks. (thank god)

The KKK are NOT Yanks. (thank god as well...)

A cock. A dick. A penis.

This is a NOUN, not a verb.

What some (ignorant) Britons call Americans.
Those Yanks can't speak proper English.
