Yea, Yeah, and Yay

So, I decided to look up and define you everyone "yea," "yeah," and "yay" because decades I've noticed confusion regarding these words. It's been so rampant, that even I've started getting confused after reading everyone else's mistakes. So...

Yea: noun--an affirmative answer (such as yea vs. nay votes)

Yeah: adverb-- informal yes

Yay: interjection--used as an exclamation of pleasure, approval, elation, or victory; adverb--so; by this amount (such as "It was yay big.")

I got the above from http://www.educationbug.org/a/yea-vs--yeah.html

http://grammarist.com/usage/yea-yeah-yay/ agrees saying:
"In modern English, yea is an affirmative reply or a yes vote. Yeah is a casual pronunciation of yes. Yay is an interjection expressing triumph, joy, or enthusiasm."

Don't like the answers? Blame Google. Actually, the dictionaries and the grammar sites tend to disagree. Interesting. I suspect the dictionaries are going by the changes in the language and popular usage, while the grammar sites are going by the original intent. It may be a while before they give up and decide people are going to write how they want. lol

Game of Thrones Gems


While reviewing for G.o.T., I read a story with a great ending written by Geoff . It's "Pillow Fight

Seshat did a couple of creative short stories called "The Shivering Spider. That's the first of the two.

A powerful and true story about a boy in Africa is "Kicky Was His Name by Life's a Beach... says Joey C .

"Nightmare is an interesting piece written by Amalie Cantor - We Got This! where the characters are emotions.

A SUPER CUTE story by Finn O'Flaherty was "Too Tired!

Well, that's all for now. I have to finish that pesky Folklore story. I'm writing about the fire in the mental hospital in 1948 that killed F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife, Zelda. Supposedly, you can still hear the screams of those who had been in restraints at the time of the fire.

TTFN!
