    Interjections

    I have been looking for interjections in the dictionary, and funnily enough I can't find any. Can anyone suggest where I might be able to find a list of Russian interjections (i.e. oh! wow! ah! ouch!yay!), along with the usage; For example 'ah' in English can express surprise, realisation and pleasure.

    Thanks

    ах -- ah
    Ха! -- Huh! (triumph)
    ой, ай -- oops, ouch
    Эй -- hey (is not used as hello)
    о, ох -- oh

    P.S. you can look up them in lingvo.
    -- Да? Коту Ваське, бл##?
    -- Нет, Я кот Васька :-/

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    А (long a) expresses vexation, annoyance, disappointment, bitterness, astonishment, malicious joy and about few dozens of other feelings.
    А-а! Я и забыл об этом.


    АГА - aha!
    insight or triumphant exclamation.
    Ага! попался!

    АГУ, endearing word (speaking to the baby)

    АЙ
    1. fear, pain, reproach, approval, astonishment, mockery, etc.
    Ай, больно!
    2. Emphasises the next word (sometimes with the help of words «как», «какой»).
    Ай как нехорошо! Ай (какой) молодец!
    Ай да + noun or verb = approval, praise.
    Ай да молодец! Ай да погуляли!

    АЙ-АЙ-АЙ [айяяй]
    reproach, disappointment
    Ай-ай-ай, как тебе не стыдно!

    АПЧХИ imitates sneezing.

    АУ.
    people use it to call to each other not to get lost (in the wood)

    Гагага, помню где-то читал, как один переводчик книги фразу Aye, aye, sir перевел как ай-ай-ай, сэр
    -- Да? Коту Ваське, бл##?
    -- Нет, Я кот Васька :-/

    Thanks Vincent , SSSS and gRomoZeka.

    And as for this other word...I have no idea, so either I'm stupid, or innocent. And I don't need anyone to suggest which one they think

    The word the guys were talking about is Б Л Я. Most people consider it very offensive, so don't use it with people who might be offended by you using this word.
