Sound Words

The purpose of this post is to introduce a few sounds to this virtual audience and to request you (humbly) to meditate upon the various shades of expression of each of them. The first two have been explained for your convenience:

Hmmm...
  • Interesting… but I don’t think I want to comment just yet

  • I don’t have an intelligent reply to that so I’ll just nod and pretend like I can see into the soul of the matter

  • [Man] I wonder what the score is... [Woman] I wonder if its raining/ if we’ll go out today/ if he’ll ever change/ if I should be more assertive with that guy at work/...

  • Great I thought everything was as bad as it could get and now you go and do this [sound usually made when expelling the breath of a sigh]

  • You are boring me to death…tell me who sent you… who do you work for...

errr...
  • Shit! Got caught … what do I do… what do I doo…[often accompanied with a sheepish grin.. though nobody knows why it is called a “sheepish grin” as sheep do not ever really grin]

  • Accompanied by a “I’m thinking hard to say the absolutely precise measured words” look...

  • Quick fast think of something to say.. anything!

mmmm...

Grrr...

Huh?

Uh...

Yay!

Uh oh!

Aha!

Ha!

Awwwww...

Ewwwww...

Umm...

Aaaa? / Aaah??

Eyy.. / hey..

    OMG! your post is the answer to questions many people ask me what I mean when I say one of those words...specially the 'hmm'.

    BTW...I invented and copyrighted the word 'Grr' ;-)

    One more BTW...I think you are in the wrong place doing the wrong work. You should be writing lines for future seasons of Friends, Seinfeld and stuff. Dont u think so?
