yo (5)

interjection; sound symbolism
hey, hello
 
"Yo! What are you doing to my car?”
Etymology : The phrase is thought to be made popular as a sailor or huntsman’s call circa 1420. It gained popularity during World War II as a common response to roll calls. Once used as noise of acknowledgement, it has converted to the modern greeting.
