Among teenagers in the U.S., there is currently popular a colloquial way of wrapping up a story:
bla bla, bla bla (various sentences), so yeah.
The "so yeah" signals that the person is done talking.
I need a term or a phrase to describe this, but more succinctly than I just did.
What follows is optional reading:
(Reason I need this: there is a transcript of hearing, with many typos. In this case, the transcript did not have a typo. But I am responding to a document in which the author assumed "yeah" was actually a typo, and turned it into "year" in her block quote. From there, she went on to spin a whole argument based this faulty interpretation. I was present when the young person was speaking, know him quite well, and am 100% certain he said "yeah," not "year." My reader will believe me -- that's not a problem -- but space is an issue in what I'm writing.)
I made a mistake. It wasn't "so yeah," it was "and yeah."
Edit #2: the argument the author spun, and her version of the testimony:
The student himself agreed that the transfer to School #2 disrupted his school year and negatively impacted his educational performance:
"They're not synched, and so I either have to relearn something or I miss something completely because they weren't taught at -- like, it wasn't taught yet at School #1, but it was already taught at School #2, so I miss a unit, and year."
