Houah - also hooah, various other spellings. See Edith or Requiem for pronunciation if you're not sure.

Military slang; can basically mean anything apart from 'no'.
General expression of enthusiasm.
Something semi-meaningless to shout when psyching up for rowing all-out.

See [here] for a brief explanation, also [here] for the same a different spelling but a better definition. [George W. Bush has had this word used at him.] And I believe he used himself, once, but I can't find the news story I saw that in.

"Those soldiers in the link sound really dumb!"-- King DJ
Yo!  --Vitenka

It would appear the actual spelling is HUA. An explanation of the origin of the term can be found [here] and the best use I've come across are the examples at the bottom of [this page] --Edith.

Ah that's a great word. :-) Brings back all the good bits in "scent of a woman".



NoLongerWordOfTheDay. Also possibly CategoryPointlessAmericanism?, if that exists.
