Bon jour tous! :)

My doubts are:

Is <Y'a> the negative form for <Y a> ?
Sort of a short way for <n'y a pas> ?

If I'm wrong, please, skip the following question, but if this is correct:
Is there any way to know when somebody is being affirmative or negative when speaking? Because <Y'a> and <Y a> have the same pronounce, right?

Merci Beaucoup!

Y'a and y a are exactly the same thing. It's the short version of "il y a".
When people talk, they sometimes say "y a" instead of "il y a" which is the correct form. Do not write "y a" unless you are writting a dialog.
The negative form is "y a pas"
