No, it's generally more of a spoken word, if I have to make a choice. Sorry, but you did ask.

this is a good one. we're at 1 no left, and we've barely narrowed it down at all it seems.

would you use it at work more frequently than other places?

No, it's a word!

The word "Yes".

I think the assertion is that a word is an item that stores data.

i fail to see how the word yes is an item that stores data. that's a pretty far stretch. it conveys information, but doesn't store data.

I fail to see why you're arguing when we wouldn't have gotten it anyway with only 1 "no" left.

yes one of those. (it would need to be less dense in order to float.)

Is it used commonly.

yes but it doesn't float because its denser, it floats because the surface area is large enough to counter-act the density.

hmm this is tough to answer. I'm gonna go with no. in places where it is used its used commonly, but in general its not commonly used.

no's left 8.

I agree. I was just saying what i thought happened.

Anyway, back in the present game

Is it commonly used in a particular profession or industry?

:edit:
after thinking about it for a while, there is one specific profession where it might be common, so ill answer yes.

nos left 8.
