ixnay

adj, adv, n
no, not, none. An all-purpose negative formed by the principle of pig Latin from the word nix, itself derived from the Yid-dish and German for not or nothing. Ixnay was heard, particularly in the USA, in the 1950s and 1960s, but is now virtu-ally obsolete apart from in the phrase 'ixnay ofay', meaning no white people allowed. Like nix it can also function as a verb.
