Re: 'Meh'

That tongue click is also spelt "tsk", though only since 1947, according to the OED, while "tut" is much older. It's interesting because it's a sound that isn't used in English other than in that particular interjection. I wonder how old the tongue click pronunciation is. The OED article for "tut" has citations from the 16th century but doesn't mention tongue clicks.
