‘uh’ is the first book to belong to both categories, as well as the latest publication at Whatever Press. This book examines the expressions uh huh (to communicate yes) and uh uh (to communicate no) and just how easy it is to confuse the two. When used in conversation, in order to understand what the speaker really means we often rely on intonation, body language and facial expressions, all of which can vary across cultures. The fact that these two letters (u and h) are visually similar, in form and shape only adds to the pickle. This book reminds speakers how two phrases that not only contain alphabets that could be mirror reflections of each other and sound similar but also convey distinctively opposite ideas.
