    yea(h) and yes

    I have often heard (esp) American people say "yea(h)". Are yes and yea(h) interchangable? Could you illustrate their uses?

    Re: yea(h) and yes

    Yes- used in formal setting or conversations. You can use it when you are having a serious dialog with a teacher for example.
    Yea[h]/ Yah- informal conversations. You can use it when you are talking to a friend.

    Note: Also a student
