Top Definition
A colloquial word used in Newburyport, Massachusetts at least before the Second World War (1939-1945), allegedly shouted from one naval ship to another to identify a resident of Newburyport. Also used to show both affirmation and disapproval ("yes," "no"); first word of the Newburyport slang-phrase "yeat the bun." Yeat can be used as a greeting, as a noun, an interjection, an adjective, and a verb.
John: Yeat!
Mark: Yes, yeat indeed. And how are you doing this fine day?
John: Yeat.
Mark: Ah, not too well. Do you want to go help me do chores?
John: Yeat to that!
Mark: Ah, so you'd rather not. How about the movies.
John: YEAT!
Mark: Great, let's go.

("yeet")

The first instance of the word 'yeat' appears during World War II as a ship-to-ship Naval greeting to identify oneself as a a resident of Newburyport, Massachusetts, USA. A response in kind indicated that the man had found a fellow Newburyporter.

The word has endured to this day, but the meaning has drastically evolved. While still used as a greeting, though rarely in the original spirit of the word, the word is now a profanity used in innumerable contexts. Meanings include: "fuck that", "fuck you", "fuck off/get the fuck out of here", "fuck", "fuckin' a", and "shit". The examples below will allow for the best understanding of the various uses of the word.

Often used in the phrase "yeat da bun".

(Yeet): noun, interjection, adjective, verb
Father: Son! Get off your ass and take the trash out!
Son: Yeat!

Friend 1: Hey man I think I'm gonna join the marching band. You wanna join with me?
Friend 2: Yeat!

Stoner 1: Duuuuude. I spilled the bong water all over your cat.
Stoner 2: Yeat!

Friend 1: Dude how old is your sister?
Friend 2: Yeat!

Originating from Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Yeat is a derogatory reaction to display disagreement or discontent with either a person, situation, opinion or proposed situation.

Those who don't understand the usage of the word will often say that it has the capability to take on any meaning the speaker intends. This is completely wrong.

Yeat most often replaces the words and phrases,

"Bullshit" & "Yeah right"
or
Fuck that, You're a fucking (moron, idiot retard, etc)

The origin of the word is from the city's famous Clipper ships from its trade days. It was often used when unloading or loading goods (such as breads). The original usage of the word most closely resembled the word: "Pass"

An example of this:

"Yeat the bun"

The word was later used to identify residents from Newburyport aboard naval ships.
"The Yankees will beat the Sox!"
"Yeah, yeat" (yeah, bullshit)

"Yeat can mean anything you want it to!"
"Yeat" (Bullshit, You're a fucking moron)

When speeding by someone who doesn't know how to drive.
"Yeat!" (You're a fucking moron)

Contraction for "You eat!"
Growing up in Nbpt in the 1970's we used yeat the same way we now say "you suck." You're sitting on the high school wall. Car drives by with someone yelling something obscene. There's was only one way to reply--YEAT!
