eg.
Q: I've got some cute preprocessor macros that let me write C code
that looks more like Pascal. What do y'all think?

A: Bleah.

I think It sounds like a part of speech usually expressing emotion and capable of standing alone, such as Ugh! or Wow!

It's a noise to express dislike or disgust, like 'yeuch'. ;-)
