Yase

adverb; other word formation type
Confirmation of a correct response
 
Used in the place of yes in situations where answer is very obvious, almost to the point of ridiculousness. Underlies sarcastic, almost demeaning obviousness with emphasis on being short with the answer to a question. It seems to be used to expel a sort of annoyance with answering, which may be why it is used in place of yes
Etymology : Slang derived from English adverb yes meaning confirmation or consent
