Usage notes[edit]

This interjection is considered vulgar by some people, its primary meaning being "you ass"; however, it is today quite frequently used in very informal speech without any vulgar overtones, either as a friendly address or as an emphasizer; some people lard their talk with it without its having any meaning (similarly to the way some people use "fuck" in English, but "vole" is not so strong). It is often used in the form "ty vole".
