vi -- yank: Yank is the Linux/vi/emacs synonym for cut (or copy?) -- "selected" text is put somewhere (the clipboard, a buffer?) from where it can be pasted. For example, yy yanks the current line (in vi command mode), and p pastes it (somewhere).

Hmm! Now I'm uncertain -- I got this correction:

emacs -- yank: Yank is the Linux/vi/emacs synonym for paste -- 'yank' means to place text from the kill ring into the buffer, i.e. it is a paste operation.

from Sean Neakums, but since I see "p pastes it" (above) I'm not so sure this is true for vi.
