Hallo Vortarulo,
Only to make sure for myself: does it convey disgust?

Vortarulo Vortarulo January 2, 2012 at 11:09 PM January 2, 2012 at 11:09 PM link Permalink

Oh. Actually not. Actually it's only for surprise.

Is "Yikes!" for disgust? Would I say "Yikes!" when seing a dead bunny on the road with its intestines and blood spilled all over the place? Then it might be "Iekse!" in German.

Eldad Eldad January 2, 2012 at 11:16 PM January 2, 2012 at 11:16 PM link Permalink

Well, "yikes" is used to express fear or shock, sometimes humorously. As in "Yikes, it's cold!"
:-)

Hmm... so "Huch!" (expressing pure surprise) isn't so bad. Another way would be "Oha!" (surprise, and/or if you notice something unexpected, like you realize you forgot your keys).

I guess it's suitable here, then.
My Hebrew seems also somewhat suitable for the English variant.
