Abi can mean different tinz.
It could mean "right?" or "isn't it?" e.g you have eaten, abi?(right?)
it could mean "or" e.g or(abi) u want to eat? It could mean "yes" e.g you're looking fresh. abi oh! (yes oh).

Apologies for posting this in the wrong section. It wasn't meant to be a joke, for those that believe it is. It is meant to educate those that know not. So if you have a problem with the location, suggest a relocation of the thread. Many regards.
