I keep hearing something like "pali" or "bali" in a speech which might mean "Ok", "All right" as I understand from the context. I didn't find that word in a dictionary. What can it be?

  • Is not Bali is Vale, meaning ok.

  • You can find the expression vale (meaning "OK") in the DLE entry for the verb valer here.

It is likely "vale" (literally "it values"/"it is worth"), a very common interjection indeed meaning "OK" / "All right".
