In Korea, this is an expression/outburst used when someone has been embarrassed, offended or annoyed.

Or, used to object something.
Example 1:

Wife-"I swear his snoring kept me up all night."

Husband-"Yah! I don't snore."

Example 2:

Friend 1: You were totally wasted last night.

Friend 2: Yah! I only had one drink...

An arrogant upper/upper-middle class lady or gent, typically a student in an otherwise charming Scottish town or city.
Girls = flowing 'blonde' hair, pink pashmina, ironically kitsch little bag, astounding ignorance, charming high-pitched giggle.
Guys = floppy birds' nest-esque hair, woollen jumpers, suspiciously tanned, exceptionally loud and annoying voice which will usually be spouting some kind of patronising ex-public-schoolboy wit.

Possibly originating from their judicious use of 'yah, darling, yah' in general conversation.

Expression of agreement, but with great apathy and obvious lack of interest. Most effective when used in an IM conversation after someone has typed five whole consecutive paragraphs.
"Geez! Like, I was SO pissed at him. I mean, like he SAID he'd call and I was all like psyched to talk to him last night but he was a TOTAL JERK and I totally waited by the phone all night for him. Like, who DOES that?? I am definitely not going out with him. He's totally dumped. I mean, don't you agree? Don't you think so? Like, put yourself in my shoes, I felt SO mad. He basically stood me up over the phone. I mean, HELLO! I have BETTER things to do than hang around all night waiting for the phone to ring. You know what I mean? You know what I mean?"

sloaney types found often, but not exclusively at the follwing universities - Bristol, Durham, Exeter, Edinburgh & St Andrews. Bray very loudly when in groups. Guys usually called Tom, girls called Pippa (but can have other very obscure names). Move to Fulham and the area around Battersea Rise after university. Some of the world´s most obnoxious people.

Yah, short form of the name of the Creator, Yahweh (Yah Weh?) as found in the Hebrew Bible. Seen as "-jah" or "-iah" at the end of many Biblical and/or Hebrew names.

Short form of the Hebrew name for deity: Yahweh.
HalleluYah (aka Hallelujah or Alleluia) means "Praise Yah".

PSALM 68:4 in the Hebrew uses the name YAH. This is retained in the New King James. The King James says JAH. Most other versions say "the LORD".

YAH means "I AM" see EXODUS 3:14-15.
