An interjection used when discussing an unfortunate circumstance without expressing anger. "Welp" is often used when exaggerating or seeking pity, sarcastically, or in attempts to conceal frustration. The 'P' sound at the end is usually muted, and simply serves as a consonant sound added onto the commonly known word "well."
