mkay

verb; blending and clipping
expressing agreement
 
Saying "okay" is a commonly used term to express agreement. In fast speech, the first syllable is often cut, replacing the "o" sound with a closed-mouth voiced sound (like in "mmmm...."). This variation of the spoken word has also been used in informal text messages.
Etymology : clipping from the word "okay", with the "m" blended into the word to indicate the initial "mmm.." sound.
