A bastardized abbreviation of the word "yankee", it originally denoted a person of New England heritage. It then was used by people from the southern United States to refer to people from the northern U.S. in general. Today, this abbreviated slang term is used mostly by people from foreign anglophone countries to refer to Americans in general, even though it is a term which ONLY defines somebody from New England (and is a phrase that most true yankees take pride in), but most Europeans are probably too ignorant, jealous, and stupid to care anyway.

A word originally meaning someone from New England, then the Northern U.S., then the North-Eastern US (those states that were always non-slave states).

Bush or Britney "we elected the President, so he must be right" Spears, or, at extremes, the KKK.
