Do different languages share words?

Do different languages share words like;
Hey
Ouch
Ahhh
Huh?
Hahaha

Just wondering if these are english words, or more natural non language words, but rather just sounds.

Re: Do different languages share words?

Some languages do share those words but certain words are spelled differently. Take Spanish for example:

Hahaha would be spelled "Jajaja"
Hey is Hey
Ahhh is aaaaaa
Huh is ah?

I believe the only word that is consistent in all languages is 'taxi.'

(That was the answer to a pub quiz I was at once, well respected place too so I'd say there was some weight behind it.)

I saw a cracking milf in Sainsburys yesterday, quality arse on her, thought it was a girl in her 20s until I saw her milfy face.

I think that is the fastest I have ever seen a thread go off topic.

We don't have Sainsbury's here.

How many languages is 'merde' rude in?

^^^ That reminds me....everyone screams in the same language.


I guess "LOL" is the same in every language, too.
