Even "Hear, hear!", especially "Hyaa, hyaa ,hyaa!" - also seem pretty
archaic, or at least formal in normal speech - maybe we should be looking
for equivalents to 'Getchya!', 'For sure!', 'Massive!', 'Lol!', etc.
depending on the circumstance!

Or, as intoned in the House of Commons:  "Hyaa, hyaa, hyaa!"

Many thanks for checking, Nicholas.

 

In a late medieval context people would have been more likely to have said
something like 'yea verily' or 'indeed forsooth'.   I imagine that
equivalents of this type of rejoinder might have featured rather than the
more contemporary expression of 'hear, hear'.
