I've noticed this word in the subtitles of many movies, is it something like "Yes" or "Ok" or "Agreed" ?

Thank You!

I've travvelled most of the UK and yes thier accents change along with thier wording but you're always to get "aye and "yeah" wherever you go ...took me some time to get used to it but yes "aye" means yes or agreed Smile

It does replace "yes," but we don't use it commonly in Canada or the States (just thought Id let you know so that you arent going around sayin "aye" all the time lol.

it's probably just a mis-spelling of "yea" which is yes or yeah

"aye" is like an old slang word for "yeah."

It's something a Pirate would say. Wink
Or sometimes when people want to take a vote, they say "Aye or Nay." (Nay being an old slang word for "no.")
