Now I’m really starting to get pissed off. A few entries ago I complained about ah and aha being in the dictionary because I don’t consider them to be words, but rather sounds that one makes in certain circumstances.

And now we get to ahem, the sound one makes when one clears one’s throat. According to the dictionary, ahem is used to get attention or express mild disapproval.

Fine. Next!
