YEP means “Yes.”
7 Answers. You are correct that “yeah” and “yep” are informal variants of “yes.” In conversation among friends, any form is appropriate, but “yep” has a slightly dismissive tone.
“Yep” is an English slang or colloquial pronunciation for “yes”. It can be used in informal speech amongst friends to provide an affirmative reply to a question where “yes” would otherwise be used. It could also be used in writing where you want to indicate slang or colloquial speech being used.
They are more or less coeval as variations of ‘yes’. Yup and its more common variant Yep are informal ways of saying Yes. The only difference is one of formality. Use Yup only in informal (casual) settings, not, say, in a business meeting.
In most cases they mean exactly the same thing. Yep is an acknowledgement that means it’s all good the less said the better. Accept it as a response on continue with your day.

Not only is yup a simple regional variation with yep, yup dates to 1906 in Century Magazine.
In some regions, more people say “yup” than say “yes”. Those are not rude or impatient people. In other regions “yup” is less common. All of these are common replies in English (in some areas) meaning “yes”: – Yes.
They have the same meaning, but there exist slightly different inflections and connotations. “Yep” is active, it is a go-getter, it implies that you are excited to respond in the affirmative, and is more playful than using “yes” but less committal than “definitely” or “absolutely”.
As proper nouns the difference between yap and yep is that yap is an atoll in the caroline islands of western micronesia while yep is (initialism).
5. Yup is defined as slang for yes.
Yep is a casual use of the affirmative, “yes”. To use it as “You are welcome” is quite casual and informal, although in the southern USA, where I am from, “Uh-huh”, or “mm-hmm” is another casual, informal way to say “You’re welcome”.
Yep is more polite than yup—which is southern-dialect American English, and rather undignified. Yep is really just a convienent way to say yes.
