Which is correct way of writing?
It depends on the location, target audience, dialect, time period, and education level. To me, both are acceptable.
Depends on context.
Yeah = yes, in context of agreeing about some point or other. I usually say yah instead...
Yea also = yes but in the context of a vote for something.
Proper English always works!
Question answered, yeah.
I've always thought of 'yea' as being pronounced like 'yay.'
As in the Bible: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death..."
Old english, I guess.
What RawBert says - "yea" is pronounced "yay," and seems to imply a vote - the opposite of "nay." "Yeah" is pronounced more or less the way it's written and is a less formal version of "yes," as in an answer to a question.
yeah.... yea is like "yay" for use in like yea or nay situations
1. yes (used in affirmation or assent).
2. indeed: Yea, and he did come.
3. not only this but even: a good, yea, a noble man.
The Biblical use must be #3, eh?
