I'm not judging or telling anyone what to do, just explaining what works for me and how I do it.
There seems to be a whole slew of different ways people use yeah, yea, ya, and yay. I use them all consistently so there's no confusion. You can do whatever you want, but here's what I do, so you don't wonder if I'm excited, agreeing, addressing you personally, or quoting scripture.
First, "yeah." "Yeah" is basically agreeing for me. Here's an example.
Friend 1: "Do you want to go see that movie?"
Friend 2: "Yeah, sure."
Second, "ya." This is a more casual form of "you." As in, "Hey, how are ya?"
Third, "yay." This is used as an exclamation. "I'm going to Disney Land!!! Yay!!!"
Forth, "yea." This is used in scripture. "Yea, verily, I say unto you..." and so forth.
Again, you can do what you want, but this is the way that all those words make the most sense to me, and then I don't have to guess which one to use. And yes, I feel very nerdy having typed it all out, but at the same time I feel good that it's all out in the open. Did I miss any?
