The Universal Word

The Universal Word
There is one word that can be understood in almost every language.

Most languages sound completely different because words aren't always tied to what the stand for, and language is limited to a finite number of possible sound combinations.

But according to a new study by phsycholinguistics researchers, there is one, short, one-syllable word that carries the same meaning almost everywhere on earth.

It's a word that signals you don't understand something and need clarification. And that word is... huh? That's right, the word is huh. Or huh?
