Have you heard the expression, "A simple yes or no will do?" We say this when someone is giving us more information that we really wanted to know, or delivering a lecture when all we wanted was an answer. In a recent study, it turns out that the words "yes" and "no" are not as simple as you would guess. For example. in English, we can answer the question "you haven't fed the cat yet, have you?" with "no, I haven't," or "yes, I haven't." These patterns are present in other languages, as well. You can read more about the study here.
