interj pron. “oy,” as in “boy” hey. General noise used to attract someone’s attention. I can’t really believe that an American being accosted with “oi” will be sitting there wondering whether that word means “faucet” or “yard,” but I wouldn’t like to feel this dictionary was too highbrow to be useful to people who had to be fed by their spouses with a spoon.
