For the question, "what is a 'yute'?". 'Yute' was a New York (Brooklyn/Bronx) dialectical linguistic error as pronounced by the character Vinnie Gambini to the judge while Vinnie was referring to his clients. Obviously, the judge did know what Gambini was saying, but preferrs a proper courtroom, and he was goating the upstart lawyer.
Other common New York City linguistical errors you may have heard. Toilet sounds like Terlet. Oil sounds like earl. 33 is pronounced Terdy Tree. Gas is Gazz. A'ight is Alright.
