Wei as used in O wei! or O weiha! is an interjection comparable to Oh dear! or Oh hell! in English. (It is usually a relatively mild interjection). People use interjections, either to convey an immediate emotional reaction or to impress. (Etymologically, wei shares a common ancestor with Weh, which means pain).


wei as a word is no longer used or recorded in dictionaries.

The expression "au weia" is comparable with "oh dear" and "oh my goodness".

If your question referred to "wie" that is the German for:

wie = as

wie = how

wie = like

wie = as per

wie = such as
