*’Jau’ is used for ‘yes’ to a negative question: ‘Aren’t you coming with us?’ ‘Yes, I am coming with you.’ ‘Yes’ to a positive question would be ‘ja’: ‘Are you coming with us?’ ‘Yes, I am.’ English used to have this distinction with aye vs yes; however, we lost it when we, English speakers, became lazy.
