strange sound made by women in the Middle East that's similar to 'woo-woo-woo-woo' and ordinarily used in their celebrations (such as occurred on the West Bank and Gaza on Sept 11)? Hey, this is no joke - I'm serious. Eric The(ButIAlsoHaveTheAnswer!)Hun[>]:)]

The word in Arabic is "zaghareet".

Who let the dogs out?? Woo! Woo! Woo! Woo! Zaghareet just doesn't have the same ring now does it.

I think the word you have in mind is "ululation".

Yes, the proper term is 'ululation'! Renamed is the winner of a large box of kudos from the Hun. Don't spend them all in one place. I came across the word in the following story: [b]Egyptian actress gets 10 years for torturing maid[/b] CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court jailed an actress for 10 years with hard labour on Wednesday for abusing and torturing her two maids, security sources said. Wafaa Mekki and her mother were found guilty of beating and torturing Mekki's two maids, 15-year-old Marwa Abul Hamid and her 17-year-old sister, Hanady. Mekki's mother got a one-year prison sentence with hard labour. Spectators who sat alongside reporters in a packed court [b]ululated[/b] when the court announced its guilty verdict.... [url]http://sg.news.yahoo.com/reuters/asia-80636.html[/url] Imagine the shame and humiliation of it all - being ululated upon in public! And Hannah_Reitsch is amazing, as well, for knowing the word in Arabic was "zaghareet". Eric The(Zaghareeting)Hun[>]:)]
