(noun, adverb/adjective)

1 to greet or acknowledge, but only slightly
2 to express sentiment or mood, but only slightly

Not to be confused with blah the term bleh is generally utilized as a conversation deterrent. Oftentimes people find themselves at the mercy of a conversation they do not wish to participate in. This predicament is typically initiated by a person greeting another or by a person answering a question regarding their general state of health/well being with what might be called a conversation initiator. For example, if person A were to ask person B how he/she is doing, the answer might take the form of an unwanted 30-minute conversation. It is in situations like this, where there is pressure to acquiesce a measure of social etiquette with a response but insufficient time/desire to address the situation with the full answer as would normally be offered that we have use for this term. In definition 1 then the implied sentiment, if transcribed, would be, "I acknowledge that you still exist...that's great...good work...I'd love to take the time to greet you properly but I simply cannot at the moment." (Note: it's possible that, in fact, you would not love to take the time to greet that person properly; in any instance)

Regarding definition 2, intonation is an important variable. Again the same theme of deterring a conversation is at heart, but in the interests of satisfying social etiquette the term may be used with varying intonation to reveal some extra detail as to the person's sentiment/mood. A short descending tone might, for example, reveal anger (another reason why you should not try to have a conversation with that person), while a stretched monotone might be used to express boredom or discontent. With experience this term can come to have a variety of specific meanings when accompanied by a mastery of its applicable intonation.

Bleh can now be seen as the opposite of blah. something that is hip, cool. stylish, stands out, sweet and not plain boring. Probably the coolest newest use of a word.
If someone yells "bleeeeeh!" as a car drives by, then the car is probably really cool or tricked out. If someone says "i'm wearing all bleh," it means they are wearing cool, hip clothing.
If you don't believe this definition then your probably not all bleeeh anymore. Its like the word "ill", "sick", "gnarly" in that it means sort of the opposite when said the right way. This is the coolest newest use of a word. "The word "bleh" is all Bleeeh!"

a bleh is a beer in every single country. Don't believe me? next time you're @ the bar/pub ask for a BLEH.
"hey, can i have a BLEH?"
You mean a beer?
"I said i want a BLEH."
A beer it is then.

When spoken by the non-Tenor, "bleh" is a simple interjection. However, when spoken by a Tenor, "bleh" transcends all languages, and can mean anything that the Tenor speaker wishes it to. This extremely advanced form of communication is understood and spoken only by Tenors.
"Bleh bleh bleh bleh bleh bleh bleh bleh bleh." Translation: "Wow, she's really cute, I wonder if I could get her phone number... Wait a second, I'm a Tenor, of course I can."
