Haven't heard these Armenian exclamations for many a year!

Ooof!  (That was said if you stubbed your toe or bumped into a chair or such!)

Okh! (That was said--the sound elongated-- for example, as an expression of extreme delight in drinking a cool glass of water on a hot day . . .)

Haven't heard either of these expressions since childhood!  Have you?

  1. Ah yes, my sister and I often let out an Ooof of frustration, which automatically makes us think of our maternal grandmother, which turns that frustration into a smile of nostalgia. :)
