How would you interpret the word ‘oughf’? How would you interpret the word ‘oughf’? Thanks. It’s from A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway. the context: "Ciaou!" he said. "What kind of time did you have?" "Magnificent." We shook hands and he put his arm around my neck and kissed me. "Oughf," I said. "You're dirty," he said. "You ought to wash. Where did you go and what did you do? Tell me everything at once."

It is just a sound, an interjection to show the character's reaction to being embraced and kissed.
