On the children\"s television present Sesame Street, Bert and also Ernie space iconic characters. Ernie has a distinctive laugh.

You are watching: Ernie sesame street laugh

I would certainly not contact it a \"deep belly laugh.\" the laugh I would write together \"Ha ha ha!\"

I would not contact it a \"giggle.\" that laugh I would certainly write together \"hee hee hee!\"

Is there a term that catches the kind of laugh that Ernie has?

I\"m in search of the right word to usage in a sentence like this:

Earnest provided his distinctive laugh, a ________________. \"Heh heh heh heh heh.\"

For those not acquainted with Ernie\"s laugh, ns have had a link to a Youtube compilation the scenes where he laughs, eighteen secs long.

Note: This doesn\"t have to be a solitary word. A phrase equivalent to \"belly laugh\" would certainly fit.

I would call that a \"fricative laugh.\" In phonology and also linguistics, \"fricative\" describes any kind of sound produced by voicelessly pushing air v a small space.

Consider call the frame laughter a \"snicker\". It can be contrasted through the overt gaffaw.

snicker noun 1 A half-suppressed, generally scornful laugh; a snigger. ‘he might not evoke a snicker through his jokes’ - ODO

Although the term can carry derisory overtones as detailed in the definition, in conversational intake it is ideal for Ernie\"s cheeky laughter.

How about chortle? native the Oxford life Dictionaries:

chortle

VERB

Laugh in a noisy, gleeful way.

‘he chortled in ~ his own execrable pun’

NOUN

A noisy, gleeful laugh.

‘Thomas provided a chortle’

Origin1871: coined by Lewis Carroll in through the spring Glass; probably a mix of chuckle and snort.

I\"ve definitely constantly seen Ernie as rather gleeful and, much to Bert\"s dismay, he is certainly noisy. I also think that Lewis Carroll and Ernie would certainly get along, so the origin is appropriate.
