    "Ha" is the noise we make when we laugh.

    Re: ha..

    It's usually "ha ha" to represent laughing. I believe that's "xaxa" in Greek. (I might be wrong.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "Ha" doesn't have a meaning to me. Yes "haha" is laughing. (The 'h' is pronounced, unlike say in Spanish, where they say 'jaja')
    'Ah' mean something like 'Oh'. You tell me something I don't know. I say, "Ah, now I get it."
    'Huh' means I don't understand something, or I'm surprised. "You're stupid!" - "Huh? Why do you say that?"
    Note that 'Ha' is a long 'Huh'.
    The closest I can think of is that "Haaaa" is meant as "aaaaah" (Ah). Some examples might help.
