Tentang "loh", "kok" dan "wah"

Apakah kata yang dibawah adalah betul:

"loh" = surprising or positive statement,
"I already bought that book!" Loh, aku sudah beli buku itu.

"Kok" emphasizes a question:
"What, really? Is that right?" Kok begitu? Emang benar?

"Wah" serves when the surprise is far bigger:
"Wow! Amazing! Did you really finish it?" Wah! Hebat! Kamu benar-benar sudah selasai?

Saya ingin tahu... Apakah kata-kata itu terdengar alami/tepat bagi Anda?

Terima kasih,
- Graham

    "loh" suprising word can mean positive or negative statement depend the sentences
    ex : "Loh.. seharusnya tidak seperti ini" ( negative, this sentence can be interpreted about disapointed about something )

    "kok" like you said it can used for emphasize question or used after word " loh " ..
    ex : Loh.. kok jadi seperti ini? / Loh.. kok kamu tidak pergi ke sekolah?

    "wah" is suprising word too like " loh " both is almost same meaning and can used in positive,negative or question sentences..

    All that words is slang used in in formal conversation...

    Semoga ini membantu :)

    "loh" = surprising or positive statement,
    "I already bought that book!" Loh, aku sudah beli buku itu.

    ^^^^^
    You also can place "Loh" in the end of the statement
    "I already bought that book!" ==? "Aku sudah beli buku itu, loh"
