Dăi = romanian street word for go

In Bulgarian too, usually when someone helps somebody to park, he calls exactly "dai, dai, dai..."
But it's true in russian it would be "davai, davai"...

Nope. at the end of the manoevre the one calling "dai" ("дай") then calls "spri!" ("спри!")=(stop!)... which can also be continued like |spri i ela da vidish kakvo napravi" ("спри и ела да видиш какво направи!!!")=(stop and come over here to see what you have done!!!)

In Italian it's quite the same, "dai" literalliy is the imperative of the verb "dare", "to give", but it's used to express something like "go", "come on":

"Dai, muoviti!"
"Come on, move!"
