Definition

Utterly useless addition to most sentences, when the speaker feels like there isn't enough empahsis on what is being said. Typically used to end a phrase, leaving the audience at a complete loss on how to respond.

Usage

A: "Machan, what did you do today da?"
B: "Dude, I went to that store, no?"
A: "..."
B: "And they didn't have the latest Android, no?"
A: "Ya?"
B: "Ya, no? So stupid only, no?"
