The word pronounced \ˈyā\ is spelled y-e-a. NOT y-a-y.
Example: Yea, my blog traffic is at an all time high!
What? You thought “yea” was pronounced \ˈyaə\. No. That is spelled y-e-a-h.
Example: Yeah, I do hate it when people spell yea, y-a-y.
I am sorry if this post offends anyone, but this is my biggest internet pet peeve of all time. Every time I see this mistake, I cringe.
I had to let it out.
For my health.
