Just curious regards other's use of {HISlaH} and {HIja'}.  I know there's no
difference and correct me if I'm wrong but personally I like {HIja'} and
especially with the glottal stop cutting off it's short and sweet well
befitting  any enthusiastic yes as opposed to a {HISlaH} which I personally
prefer for  a reluctant yes  like I'm saying yes but swearing under my
breath as I do so ;-)

Do other people just use the one they prefer, randomly use either or some
other personal rule of thumb?
