A nyeow is a meaningless sound, usually uttered loud and with great force
The Meaning and Use of Nyeow
As stated before, nyeow does not have just one meaning, and one may modify nyeow to suit one's needs. The typical nyeow is used to illicit laughter from classmates, usually while the teacher has their back turned. Recently, however, nyeow has been used to express indignation, such as after an exceptionally difficult test. For example, a student may be asked, "How was the test?", and it would be permissible to reply with a loud, resounding "NYEOW"
Furthermore, nyeow can be casually slipped into conversation to communicate understanding, providing that one can maintain a straight face. If one should be caught by a teacher mid-nyeow, it is advisable to cough and apologize
How Does One Nyeow?
Contrary to popular belief, the nyeow is an extremely complex sound which begins thusly:
1. The nyeower will shift their jaw far to the left. The lips will be taut, the mouth slightly open, and the left incisors bared
2. The nyeower then brings their jaw down and to the right, it is here where the sound is initiated. As the jaw is lowered and the mouth opened, the signature nyeow is emitted
3. The sound is continued as the jaw is moved all the way to the right, At this point, the end of the nyeow is "swallowed”, the "w" sound must be made with the jaw completely to the right and almost closed
Note- The "casual nyeow" is often done without any jaw movement
