Yes na3am aywah iih

wow! that's quite a difference for such a simple expression. Thanks.

I cant speak for Moroccan but eih also means yes in Levantine and from what I understand it is more like saying "yeah" so in formal contexts you would still use na3am.

The more I learn I find it is often true that a lot of expressions that get taught as a specific dialects expression are still used and understood in multiple regions (but definitely not always!)
