Yes, Yeah or Ya?

Stepping out of the room in which our weekly status meetings are held, I couldn’t help noticing the way different people responded to questions that required a simple yes or no. Most people on my team have this habit of saying “Yeah” when they mean “Yes”.

And somehow that bothers me. Not sure why. May be it is because I use “Yeah” or the desi “Ya” when I am not sure but am not going to extend the discussion then? I tend to say “Yes” clearly when I know for sure.

That brings me to another thing I am noticing of late. I keep confusing myself between American and Indian spellings and pronunciation. Specially words that end in “logy” or “tory”. I sometimes stop mid-sentence not knowing how to say the word!

Hope you all are having a better day than I am! Have a lovely week ahead.
