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

Vortarulo Vortarulo January 2, 2012 January 2, 2012 at 11:09:13 PM UTC 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 January 2, 2012 at 11:16:15 PM UTC 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.
