    Default Re: Commonly confused words

    Number 8? "Yea" is synonymous with "yippie"? "Yay" is, sure, but "yea" is actually synonymous to "yeah", isn't it? (Even if it's archaic.) And expressing one's joy by exclaiming "yeah" seems just as justified as doing it by exclaiming "yes", which is also done.
