Hi there, I've got an Irish pal and I caught him saying the word "ofay" I'd heard it before and having done a little research I was confirmed that it did mean something like "being aware of, knowing something" in a following context. - I am not offay with this kind of a brand-name. So basically I want to learn more about this word, I'm quite certain that it might be used differently or not at all in certain places and I was wondering how often you use it, I'd be surprised if it was common in the U.S., according to a dictionary it is a derogatory term for a white person but to according to another entry in a different website it is "(adjective) knowledgeable in a particular area, comfortable with the material, particularly with computers; i.e. That data entry clerk is ofay with computers; she can be given more responsibility." http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ofay http://www.drwords.com/define/ofay Thank you very much for your help!
