“You can lose a thousand battles but only by losing your laugh you will have known the real defeat ” Ho Chi Minh
From the original Post: How is laughter written ? – Via Cubadebate
Laughter is an essential part of life. Doctors prescribe it as the main medicine of the soul. And in this era of new technologies, when sometimes we communicate more by text than face to face; each culture has “translated” laughter into written language.
In English, when someone sends some meme or just a hilarious comment, the most common answer is “ha ha ha”, while the French prefer the “hé hé hé” or simply the “MDR” figures, which mean “mort de rire” “, Died of laughter in Spanish.
In the United States it is also common to use the acronym LoL, “laughing out loud”, to express a strong laugh.
In Spanish, they use the classic “ja ja ja” to represent a laughter in the written language. Although others prefer the “ji, ji, ji” or “je, je, je”, depending on the type of laughter you want to convey.
But there are other very striking expressions such as the use of the number “5” in Thailand, because the inhabitants of that Southeast Asian nation pronounce this figure as “ja”.
In Japan they use the “W”, in Iceland the quick way to express a funny reaction is “hí híhí”, in Portuguese it is “rsrsars” and there are other striking ways to laugh.
So, smile at this 2018 that comes as you wish, but do not stop doing it, you’ll see how it gives you the most fun of laughter
Happy New Year 4 you all folks from this colorful window !
