I was talking with a friend today, and he used a word that sounds like "yaky", where the "a" is pronounced the same way as the "a" in "father". Judging from the context, I think it describes something that he doesn't like. I tried to look for the word but could not find it. Could someone tell me what the word might be? Thanks!
It does not involve food. We were talking about math, and he describes the kind of analysis (a field of math) that he doesn't like as "yaky analysis".
