Huh? It’s a universal word, linguists find. A new study examined languages from around the world and discovered what they could be a universal word: “huh?”

“While it may seem like a throwaway word, “Huh?” is the glue that holds a broken conversation together, the globe-trotting team reported Friday in the Journal PLOS ONE.”

Now I can point to this study when my wife asks me a question when I’m not paying attention. “Huh?”

    Thanks for the ever so useful piece of information. So when I am struck dumb, I can be international.

      Knowing my wife of 22 years the answer is yes. With caps on “DUH!”

      Thanks again; always enjoy your takes.
