What exactly is a Yah, and why is it that everybody hates them? I had never heard the term before viewing this board, and curiosity's got the best of me.

(copy and pasteed from urbandictionary )

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.

Kill the yahs!

sorry to prolong this but...

do yahs see themselves as yahs? is it a term they would use to describe themselves? Goths might label themselves as goths, etc. etc.

i believe i am in a position to explain this. In scotland we call rahs yahs, it supposedly comes from the way they say yah instead of yes. A yah is nothing more than a common rah, but in scotland. You get alot of them at Edinburgh Uni and St Andrews.
