Wikipedia definition
7. Yes and noYes and no are two words for expressing affirmatives and negatives respectively in English ("Are you hungry?" "Yes, I am. "). Early Middle English had a four-form system, but Modern English has reduced this to a two-form system consisting of yes and no. Some languages do not answer yes-no questions with single words meaning 'yes' or 'no'. At least one, Welsh, is widely but erroneously believed to have no words for yes and no.
