A paralanguage question.
- How do you spell(I’m not sure how to put it into a word; maybe “the ‘tsssp’ sound?”) the noise you make inhaling through your clenched teeth when you think of something?
- Does it have a name; what is it called?
- Is it common for native English speakers?
I’ve just heard it in this video where American and German women are talking in English. Before I ran into this video on YouTube, I thought it was a Korean thing as I saw many Koreans made that noise, but turned out it was not.

Mori Calliope🇺🇸: Yeah, I wonder what we should do.
Takanashi Kiara🇩🇪: Umm.
Mori Calliope🇺🇸: What do you think?
Takanashi Kiara🇩🇪: I mean…, ______ (**the noise**), uh…, it’s, it’s kind of weird to leave it there.
Mori Calliope🇺🇸: Yeah, maybe we should do—, go back and do it again.
