I was having dinner at someone else's place when I heard the hostess
ask her daugher a negative question along the lines of: "You haven't

She replied: "Yes. No."

It inspired the word _áhi_ in Calénnawn, which now has:

á	yes
hi	no
áhi	indeed, it's not (as a reply to a negative question)
áha	on the contrary, it is (Fr.: si) (as a reply to a negative question)
