I just saw this in a thread and rather than hijacking it, I thought I’d ask here. What does “gotcha ya” mean? Well, I can guess from context that it means gotcha, but why the additional ya part? (And from a quick google search, it doesn’t even seem to mean that. I can’t even figure out the context from how it’s used in some of the things I found on google) So what does it mean and where does it come from?
I couldn’t find it in the glossary of terms.
