look up any word, like blumpkin:
 
1.
"Like" in Arabic. So instead of saying "like", people from the Middle east use the word yaani instead. To more accurately write the word in the way it is spoken it is sometimes spelled as ya3ni, because the 3 looks like the letter ayin.

Dude 1: Hey dude, yesterday I was talking with my teacher, and ... yaani, I said, yaani, why did you take off 10 points on my test. Yaani, it's so unfair.

Dude 2: Yeah, that guy is a prick.
