Nay and Aye - those are real old slang. Aye is still used somewhat today... now the standard for No is "Naw" - It's not really a word that replaces YES or NO- it's more a phrase... check out irish slang online and you'll find colorful phrases!! Good Luck

For yes it would be 'Aye' pronounced 'Eye'.

To get technical on your ***, we often use the auxillary verb from the question when making the answer. For example:

Will you meet me at 6?
I will.

Did he call you last night?
He did.

Is it yourself that's in it?
Tis.

"do you want to meet up at 9?" "sound"or"grand"

or you can say "sound as a pound"

eh well a thing with irish people is they sidetrack a conversation, like they wouldnt reply with 'yes' so much, it be like 'sure why not'

now i know this is not what u mean but just saying.

'ye'-not slang but u rarely hear 'yes' among younger people

bye

oh and some people also might use 'sea' pronounced SHA an irish word in an english sentence which translates to yes.
(actually nobody expect me does this, or when i switch between english and irish)
