Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   Hi,

Does anyone know of crosslinguistic work done on interjections, in
particular on the phonological analyses of interjections? Or lexica
which include nonlexical interjections (pause fillers,
acknowledgement) in different languages?
Any pointers to or your own observations of what nonlexical
interjections exist in different languages, variations in the
interjections, similarities across languages will be greatly
appreciated as well!

Many thanks,
