Laugh Ways of Ha-gyō

In Japan, many laugh ways are represented by 'ha-gyō' (ハ行).

'Ha-gyō' (ハ行 - literally means "ha row") contains 'ha' (ハ), 'hi' (ヒ), 'fu' (フ), 'he' (ヘ) and 'ho' (ホ), and you can generate a laugh sound by repeating one of them.

'Hahaha' (ハハハ) ・・・ A common laugh (for many countries).

'Hihihi' (ヒヒヒ) ・・・ A laugh in a contemptible tone of voice.

'Fufufu' (フフフ) ・・・ A creepy laugh or woman's pretty laugh.

'Hehehe' (ヘヘヘ) ・・・ A embarrassed laugh.

'Hohoho' (ホホホ) ・・・ A pompous laugh.

In actual conversation, 'hahaha' or 'ahaha' (アハハ) is most commonly used.
