A lot of EXPRESSIVE sound words start with today's letter, E. I've used "Euuu!" in dialog for teens, but I've never used the others I've listed below. Is "Euuu" still a good way to express the teen voice? Do you use other E sound words?

Euuu!
Eeek!
Eureka!
Egad! (Sorry, I'm out of E words. Give me more!)

Be sure to HOP around and say hi to others who are in on this wildly wonderful A-Z Blogging Challenge.

  3. I have to go with my all time, favorite "E" word- Ennui! Though, I am not feeling this way at all right now, which is a good thing : ) ~ Jess

  4. Oh, man--I didn't realize how hard it is to think of words that start with "E" until I read your post! I've never used Euuu in my YA, but I have used plenty of "Eeews!"

  6. "Eureka!" LOL :o) I'd really love to hear someone actually say that. I think it would just be so comic! Someone should try and make it cool. :)

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
