American-English Words That Seem To Be Universal

Judging by foreign-language TV shows/movies I've watched, here are a few English and/or American-English words / mutterings / phrases that now seem universal, no matter which language you speak:

  • "Mm-hmm" or "uh-huh" - meaning "yes";
  • "OK" or "okay";
  • "Hey";
  • "Super" pronounced "supah" - meaning "great";


    Of course, the Italian word "ciao" has been universal for years. And, it's always possible English stole the others from other languages, as we are wont to do.

    Any others? I feel like I'm missing at least one obvious one. Leave a comment, below...
