Definition

A phrase used while playing Aeroplane aka kunte-bille aka hopscotch. In the last round of the game the player has to close his / her eyes and navigate the kunte-bille court without stepping on any of the lines in between to win the game. So he / she checks with other players if he / she is right. Pronouncing it the "wrong" way - "Am I Right" - guarantees that the player looses that turn.

Usage

Player 1 Closes eyes, faces upwards and walks into the box numbered 1 in the court and
Player 1: amireet?
Player 2: yes
Player 1 moves to the next box and steps on the line
Player 1: amireet?
Player 2: Outu, outu!
