Dekey
Canada flag
Posted by: Prairie
Details
Something that is fashionable, cool. Something done in an unusual or impressive manner. A variation on Deke (faint: a hockey move) Circa early 1970's
"He was trying to be real dekey."
I was in high school in the early 70s in Ontario, and I never heard "dekey". "Deke him out" meaning to fool or outwit him was pretty common -- I haven't heard it in years! I had to come here to find out about "dekey" because a friend saw it on FB superpoke and thought it had a little maple leaf next to it so I should know! By the way that is FEINT not faint! Faint means to drop unconscious. Comment by: Catherine   
yeah where did Superpoke pick this one up? never heard it before Comment by: liam   
Wasn't this spelled DEEK - Deek em' out - deek to the right - decked out was a whole other realm man ... get yer slang straight! Comment by: Doll   
I've never heard dekey, but have heard "to deke" or "to deke out"--a verb meaning to bluff or fool someone or fake someone out. Comment by: val   
To Doll: please get your spelling straight! Only *ever* spelled "deke". Comment by: jace   
Instead of 'faint,' a deke is a 'feint.' There's a major difference. Comment by: Patrick

eh
Canada flag
Posted by: tarapotoRating:0.6  
Details
The other definition listed is only partial. It can mean "huh?", but it is not terrible common. We usually just say "huh?" in Canada. "Eh?" is a word you add to the end of a sentence, to ask for a response of agreement or disagreement, similar in meaning to "don't you think?" ex. "Looks like a storm comin' in, eh?" It is also sometimes used with "I know", and in that case it doesn't really mean anything. -"Wow, the Flames really kicked ass tonite!" -"I know, eh?" Good luck trying to use it properly if you're not Canadian. Trust me Americans, we can tell the difference! You're not foolin' anybody :)
that's a pretty common term in australia, we use it properly. Comment by: josh    Rated:3/5
for the second example you used...it means like "i know, right" -- "i know, eh?". So it kinda does have a reason. I dont if that really makes since. Comment by: Kendra    Rated:3/5
piffft really it just like de brits when dey say yea? at da end of de sentaces asken a question. well here anyway, we say eh as revering to something or just at the end of sencncet. "lets go over der eh" Comment by: ashlee   
why is this spelt EH, but pronounced ay? Comment by: toby   
We Michiganders use this quite often too, especially in the Upper Penisula. Comment by: Mick   
it isnt pronounced "ay" it is more "EH" like eight with out the ght Comment by: davee

A nicer way of saying 'Huh?'
very nice eh! Comment by: ME    Rated:5/5
Ha, "Eh?" it's pure Canadian. Although.. japan has adopted it. They use it for "huh?" as well. or, so i believe. Comment by: ImmaCanadian   
Some Brits and other Commonwealth countries use it a lot too. But we're the most famous for it :) Comment by: Gina   
in japanese you say 'ne' not eh. at the end of a sentence it can be used,basically, in many of the ways you use eh. or you might be thinking of 'he' (pronounced heh) which can be used for 'what?' or 'huh?'. Comment by: mar   
Yeah we use that a lot in southern England =) Comment by: Jase    Rated:4/5
actaually mar "eh" basically means "huh?" or "what" when used in japnese, you hear a lot fo highschool girls use this...it's a sort of expression I guess. Comment by: sam
