November 15, 2011 - Word of the Day

yuck

 

You can use "yuck" as an interjection. An interjection is a one-word statement usually followed by an exclamation point (!). "Yuck" is popular among children, but some adults use it also when they don't like something:

  • Yuck! This tastes terrible!
  • What's that green stuff on the water? Yuck!
  • Oh, yuck!

You can make an adjective by adding a "y" to the end of the word:

  • This looks yucky. I'm not eating it.
  • The kids said the spinach was yucky.

yuck Yuck! What's that?

 

Note: This word is more popular among children than among adults.
