There are also more trivial options to agree, such as those below, but we are not including them in the poll to test the less standard expressions:)

  • Yep, Yeah, Uh-huh, Yup, By all means, Ok, Okey-dokey;
  • Sure, Surely, Totally, Right on, Very well.

Any other ways to agree? Post in the comments!

This poll is inspired by the Oxford Dictionary blog post.

@googol sometimes it could even be RightYo! ;) Yes, very colloquial but they do exist.

@Lisa-Ockinga thank you for your reply! I didn't know English has many ways to say Yes.

googolさん、たくさん「yes」の言い方があるんですが、だいたい「yes」や「sure」の変形です。以外に外来語です。

例えば、「ja」というのはドイツ語の「へい」なんですけれどもドイツ語が英語を影響したんだからね。「yuppers」というのは「yes」の変形です。

時間がかかればかかるほど、yes>yep>yup>yuppersとスラングのように変わります。

certainly, definitely, for sure all mean yes as well

Roger (just like the name, Roger) means yes when you are talking on the radio. You will hear it a lot in war movies. ... oops that was one of your original 10, I should have re-read the question.
