New Zealanders – we like to be affirmed, aye? We always finish our sentence with a request for feedback, eh. Like this, ay.
So yeah. How do you spell that anyway?
‘Aye’ is my preferred option. It spells out the way we all say it, like the Fonz. I am painfully aware, however, that really, that particular spelling means ‘yes’ in Scotland (and in the olden days).
Then there’s ‘eh’, which is what all the newspapers use. Eh. Eh. Eh. It looks wrong to me. Staccato, and the wrong vowel sound altogether.
Maybe ‘ay’ is an option? Dunno. How do you write it?
