Triumph Dining Ad

Friday, January 8, 2010

(aaaah)

Have you ever noticed how many different ways this sound is used?

If someone is hurt, we say, "Aw, you poor thing!"
If we are frightened, we yell, "AH!"
If we are impressed, we breathe, "Oooo.... Aaah..."
If we think something is cute, we coo, "Awwww!" with that squeaky sound at the end.
If we are fighting, we fiercely bellow, "AAAAARGH!"
If we figure something out, we let out a triumphant "Aah!" or "Ah-Hah!"
If we step in a puddle of water in our socks, we sqeual, "Aagh!"

I love the weird things our language can do.

What makes you go, "Aaah!"?

Hahaha! That is so true! While I was reading your post, I tried to make all those sound the Indonesian & Chinese ways too. Really fun! =D

My morning "constitutional." But only because you asked.

I've heard your Aunt Sylvia make that sound as she slips between the sheets at the end of a long day.

Thanks for coming by my blog! I love Saturday SITS ShareFest!

My boys do not eat gluten free but they did for quite a while and found that it was not improving their behavior or bowel issues so we went back to regular food

I go "ahhh" when my daughter has smeared ranch dressing all over the couch.
