M for mmmm....

Mmmm.(1).. What shall I write about the letter M? Actually the M is a very popular letter and therefore often used as the initial letter in names. Mamma, mum, mom is the first a baby says before it can speak. If somebody speaks inaudible, he mumbles. Everybody can mumble. Mmm(2)... is also used if some food is delicious, and everybody understands what it means. There is a third possibility if someone says mmmm.... When I don't agree with somebody and I don't want to say: "Sorry I disagree with you', I start saying: mmmm.(3)..with a slightly pensive look. And the other person knows that I am of another opinion. In this case my voice starts in a high tone, then it is going down.

So the letter M is very important. It depends on the way you look, the intonation and the speed you say it with. My first mmmm... is very slowly and softly pronounced, also with a pensive look in my eyes. The second  mmmm.. is pronounced with enthusiasm and with a happy look on my face, and a lot louder than with the other  mmmm....'s!

The third mmmmm... is pronounced with a sort of  shorter sound and not as loud as the second one but loud enough to draw the attention. You can add some shaking of your head, but don't forget the pensive look!!! Conclusion: With  mmmm... you can show all kind of emotions, you don't need a foreign language to express yourself. Good luck with the letter M.
