The term 'okke' was borrowed from the English 'okay' - see the related entry on the use of this word as an interjection, functionally a different word. In this sense, it has the specific sense of affirming something or consenting to something. It is most often used in the context of the implanted identity chip system, where certain uses of the information on the chip require the bearer to provide positive consent/affirmation/'opt' to allow the action, often by pressing a biometric scanner or entering a code.

As a noun, it refers to an act of such assent. As a verb, it is a skurun verb where the absolutive object is the action assented to. E.g., 'A lij√°tuin tene okke a pejy', 'The woman authorised the payment'. The modifier form 'okkes' means approved, consented, and the serived form 'okkesyn' refers to this system in general.
