Used in the place of "yes" yay-eee-s
Expression used to acknowledge a comment that is exceedingly odd or beyond the listeners level of understanding. Also used as a way of providing an answer without actually answering anything. Often one may incorporate a pause as to create the illusion that they are actually thinking of a valid answer or comment. One may also use "yais" as a way of covering up his/her daydreaming while in a conversation. For an example of how to say "yais" properly listen to tom hanks in the movie "The Terminal".

"yais" can't be defined conventionally. one would be less successful at defining "yais" than he/she would be at defining the contemporary english language's utility infielder, "like". "yais" is a state of mind. "yais" is understanding and misunderstanding, as well as all points described on the subsequent continuum.
you are lovely, yais; gay, yais; yais? yais; is two plus two, four? yais; (if i had the character spaces to continue, i probably wouldn't. yais.)

Comical pronunciation of "yes," meant to immitate eastern Europe and Middle-Eastern accents. Used by Group X in prank calls and songs.
Good girl: Yais! Bad girl: No! I don't want her to schbraik my ween-dow.
"yais" is a different way of saying "yes." From what I can tell, it's origins are from the West Virginian area. All you'll ever need to know is that it means "yes" or "yeah."
"Yais... It sure is."
