In England: During information-gathering conversations, "right" is an unconsciously uttered filler word that precedes the response to a question. The duration of the utterance is directly related to the assuredness of the response that follows. Short utterances indicate that respondents are confident of their answers. Drawn-out utterances denote that respondents have less confidence in their answers. When the pronunciation is drawn-out excessively, respondents are signaling that they do not know the correct answer, yet feel obliged to respond anyway.
"How many eggs should I use in this quiche?"

"Right. Three eggs ought to be enough."

"What is the most direct route to Scarborough Fair?"

"Ri-i-i-ght. I believe you follow this road to a roundabout, and go west."

"Is the library open on Sunday?"

"Ri-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ight. I do remember a time when the library was open seven days a week."

"Right...."

1. An empathetic emphasizer; a rhetorical device to express both understanding and agreement; an encouragement.

For people too lazy to agree with someone in more than a single word. Also, when something is so obvious or apparent that you can ask "right?" in reasonable certainty that no one will disagree.
"This administration's policies are giving me Irritable Bowel Syndrome."
"I know, right?"

"I think you deserve better than that guy."
"Right?"
