Is there a word such as いやよね ? I heard The Anime Man mention it in this video(https://youtu.be/k8UmX17DXWg) at around 14:34. However I couldn't find this word in any dictionary.

  • Are you trying to look it up as all one thing? Generally particles like よ or ね will be separate entries. You can probably find them together as よね as well, but they don't gain any special meaning that you can't determine from looking them up individually.

  • He used it as a single word. He said いやよね教団(iyayone kyoudan) most probably. Nov 3 '21 at 10:03

    I don't think there's anything misleading about it, it's part of a proper noun (or at least is meant to be one, I didn't watch any more of the video) so it's not going to be bound to grammar rules of sentences or anything. Whether you call いやよね 1, 2 or 3 words based on how it was used there isn't really that meaningful of a distinction in the context of a proper noun. It only matters when trying to look up the parts.

いや means "unpleasant"

よ in this context means "it is"

ね is used at the end of a sentence to solicit the listener's agreement with the speaker.

Put together the whole is "it's unpleasant, isn't it?"
