The following was forwarded to me by a friend and I thought this was the
appropriate venue to which to pass it along.
Dorothy Schwartzberg was here on Sunday and gave me a massage.
In the midst of my ullulations we decided to write an article on
"authentic massage pleasure sounds". Here is the list so far...
Yeep! -------- Sound made when going over a hot spot.
Airt' -------- Exclamation associated with pressure on a lymph node,
specifically in the armpit.
EeeeSha! ----- Two syllable plosive associated with first bunching a
long muscle and then releasing it as the massage stroke
Nmrnym ------- Murmur generated by spreading the pectorals
Thought you would like it, or have something to add. I've asked a
linguist friend for a techno term describing such nonlanguage, meaning
carrying utterances, but he is stumped. Too bad. It would have been so
nice to be highbrow.
