There needs to be 2 seperate words for the word, "wow"!

13 replies 16 views Edited Dec 23, 2006
This is what I think:
 
1.  wow (pronounced like regular wow):  Sarcastic remark to poke fun at something extraodinary, but worthless.  (aka, A 1,000 videogame collection,  giant cardhouse, etc.)
 
2.  wow (pronounced woe):  Being in awe of something, or pitying an unexpected sad event.
 
Whenever i'm on the internet though, i can't use the second one because you can't pronounce words differently over the internet, so sometimes i just say wowe, but then some people might think im saying wow wee! 
 
DAMN YOU MERRIAM WEBSTER!
