What does yey mean in texting?
same as YAY1 Answer.
YEY definition means “same as YAY”..
What is Yay?
Yay is defined as an expression of approval, great happiness or excitement. An example of yay is what you would shout upon winning the lottery.
What is the reply of sure?
(I “sounded” like I did not mind, but I technically said I minded.) That being said, native speakers do say “Sure!” as a reply, meaning “I don’t mind.” and it is taken as “No.” without causing any confusion. However, according to Longman American English dictionary, (“Sure”) is used to say “yes” to someone.
Is yea same as Yeah?
“Yea” is a very old-fashioned formal way of saying “yes,” used mainly in voting. It’s the opposite of—and rhymes with—“nay.” When you want to write the common casual version of “yes,” the correct spelling is “yeah” (sounds like “yeh” ).
How do you use yay in a sentence?
I survived though and our team won, so yay, or however else I should show my joy and elation. It was originally going to be Rachel with the room to herself, but now this, so yay rah!
Is Yey a word?
No, yey is not in the scrabble dictionary.
What are different ways to say yay?
How do you spell yea like a cheer?
Yay is simply an alternate spelling of yeah or yea, which have distinct pronunciations and meanings. (Yeah, an informal variant of yes, is pronounced “ya” and sometimes spelled that way; yea, which sounds like yay, survives as an affirmation in biblical contexts and as a counterpart to nay in voting contexts.)
What is nay and yay?
Yea indicates a yes vote. Nay indicates a no vote. Yay is an affirmative exclamation, and is also used concurrently with a hand gesture to indicate size. It is not used for voting.
Is it yay or yey?
You pronounce yay in the same way you pronounce yea, which makes these two words homophones—indistiguishable when spoken and easily confused when written. They have different meanings, though. While yea is the word we sometimes use for yes, yay is the word we use to express joy, approval, or excitement.
Is it rude to say yeah?
There’s nothing rude about “yeah”. It’s the normal affirmative word in English and all native speakers use it, even those who complain about it. In “yeah right”, using “yeah” is mandatory. You can’t replace it with “yes” in this instance.
What can I say instead of yes?
Yep and yeah are very common alternatives to yes, but are only used informally, among people you know well, and they might be frowned upon in formal settings, such as the workplace when you’re speaking to your boss.
Is ey a Scrabble word?
No, ey is not in the scrabble dictionary.
Why do we say Yeah instead of yes?
“Yeah” is probably related to “yea.” I don’t know, but I suspect it didn’t actually evolve from yes. Yea (pronounced “yay”) has long been a formal term for assent, and the German ja (“yah”) is identical in meaning to “yes”.
