Yalla, also spelled Yallah, is a common expression denoting "come on", "let's get going", or mostly meaning "hurry up". Originally an Egyptian Arabic slang (يلا/يللا/ياللا) composed of two parts Ya-lah meaning "Come on boy!", it good widely spread among the region due to its use in Egyptian movies and songs, it has also then been adopted in the Persian, Turkish, and Hebrew languages. Many Armenians (primarily those from MENA countries) also use the term.
