AAAAAARRRRGH (capitals tends to increase the volume..) is therefore a very flexible and somewhat instinctual expression: many who write it in emails and blogs would not easily be able to articulate its exact meaning, and certainly it is difficult to interpret a precise meaning for an individual case without seeing the particular exchange and what prompted the Aaargh response.

That said, broadly speaking, we can infer the degree of emotion from the length of the version used.

Cliches and expressions give us many wonderful figures of speech and words in the English language, as they evolve via use and mis-use alike.

There are very few words which can be spelled in so many different ways, and it's oddly appropriate that any of the longer variants will inevitably be the very first entry in any dictionary.

Spelling of Aaaaarrgghh (there's another one..) varies most commonly in the number of 'A's, and to a lesser extent in the number of 'R's. If you are wondering what Aaaaaarrrrgh and variants actually sound like, then consider the many types of outrageous screams which traditionally feature in fight/death/falling scenes in TV/cinema.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrgh clearly has a touch more desperation than Aaarrgh.

The use of Aaaaargh is definitely increasing in the 21st century compared to the 20th, and in different ways.

I'm not able to answer all such enquiries personally although selected ones will be published on this page.
