German colloquial expression meaning yes and no (ja und nein, but pronounced 'yein'), used to describe a situation that is overtly true, but covertly false, or something that seems one way, but is in reality another, rather like the expression 'Ja, ABER...' which means anything else but 'yes'.

Jein (yein). Es stimmt, aber nur wenn die Welt flacht ist...
