You boys are crazy!

Continuing my string of random Asian characters, here is an exclamation that I heard a lot when I was growing up…

The full sentence was usually: “哎呀! Why are you boys awake? It is two AM!”

哎呀: [aiya!] Oh, Lord! Wow! WTF!

[ai1] /an interjection/hey/lookout/why etc/

[ai1] /an interjection/to express realization or agreement (yes, oh, right, etc)/

[ya5] /(final part.)/
