To "Boo Hoo"
Regardless of its official "status," I certainly don't have a problem with "boo-hoo" as a verb. It's stylisitc, but can set the right tone and sense of a person's experience, much more than sobbed, wailed, weeped (wept), teared up, etc., etc. There's a comedic loudness to "boo-hoo" that the other verbs cannot carry.shamblesuk said:Would you really class 'boo hoo' as a verb? I boo-hooed, she boo-hooed, they used to boo-hoo etc. More of an interjection I would propose.
