Explanation:
I think you mean
H A III A /\ Y 4 III E
(excuse for writing in that barbaring manner).
This mean "our one is better" (and they also mean that "one" has the feminime gender). E.g., there was an old anekdot.
On a symphonic concert one man become disturbed by the music and start to confess his crimes to his wide: You know, I live a bad and dirty life. I have a lover. Moreover, she is present on this performance. Hiw wife starts to observe baignoire:
W. You mean that blondy?
H. No, that brown-haired, the blondy is of my boss.
Short pause and then the wife says: Isn't is right dear? Our one is better!

Hope now you got the sense:).
