meh

There’s a word I like to use to describe the way I feel right now, and the word is “meh.” What is meh? Well, it has many uses but if I was forced to define it I would say it’s usually one of a few things either the quality or condition of feeling indifferent, the state of lacking interest or concern, or the state of feeling neither good nor bad but somewhere in between leaning towards apathy.

To help you understand its use in the English language I will explain a little further. When asked what ones dinner preference is for the evening, said person can reply with a simple “meh” and a slight shrug of the shoulders. When asked how ones day went, said person can reply with “meh” and again a shrug of the shoulders. In keeping with the spirit of the word, meh is used as a one word answer to such questions. Rarely will you hear it used in conjunction with other words in a sentence. Meh is a sentence all to itself.

I hope this has proved useful, and I fully expect this word to be adopted into your vocabulary.

  1. What about a close cousin of “meh?”Personally I use “enh” or the more emphatic “engh” to express the feelings or state of being associated with “meh.” I have also, at times, been known to use “meh,” but it’s not the most prevalent.
