Lincoln, A. C. (n.d.). The Rise of Roscoe Paine. Retrieved from

Um-hm is, I believe, good Scotch for Yes. I have read that it is, somewhere -- in one of Barrie's yarns, I think. I had never been in Scotland, or much of anywhere else, except the city I was born in, and my college town, and Boston -- and Cape Cod. Um-hm meant yes on the Cape, too, except when Dorinda said it; then it might mean almost anything. When Mother asked her to lower the window shade in the bed-room she said Um-hm and lowered it. And, five minutes later, when Lute came in, loaded to the guards with explanations as to why he had forgotten to clean the fish for dinner, she said it again. And the Equator and the North Pole are no nearer alike, so far as temperature is concerned, than those two Um-hms. And between them she had others, expressing all degrees from frigid to semi-torrid.
