      TT interjections

      Hello,
      I hope I’m not going to offend anyone and should be clear this is a non serious post just for a laugh.
      Since I started playing more seriously, going to clubs and especially watching matches online, I got curious about the loud interjections and general exclamations phrases players like to use. Actually first thing I noticed was players routinely wiping the table close to the net with their palm. Then the stomping. Eventually understood the reason for these two. Then I started to notice the exclamations people made, and found, going to clubs, people shouting similar things.I’m not native English speaker so this might be down to me not getting something really basic. What is everyone shouting? Shooooo I guess is ‘shot’ as in great shot. Then there’s something that sound like ‘got it!’ Am I correct? Seems to get used by people regardless of their native language.. Then I guess there’s the equivalent Japanese (Harimoto seems to shout the same things as Kaii Yoshida just more frequently and louder) and Ma Long has his phrases as well..
      Is there such a thing as a TT lingo for interjections that people like to use, or I’m imagining things?

      Google search for: chorei :

      What does 朝礼 (Chōrei) mean in Japanese?

      English Translation:
      morning assembly

      More meanings for 朝礼 (Chōrei)
      morning assembly noun
      98% of use
      朝礼
      pep talk noun
      2% of use
      朝礼

      I doubt Harimoto is calling for morning assemblies but it would make things funnier and less annoying to hear if he was.

      When you fail to reach a shot to your wide FH, you exclaim:

      Thanks, this will come in handy I will have a lot more opportunities to say wo cao than I do chorei, since failing to reach wide fhs is a staple of my game. I assume it means something equivalent to "oh shit!" or will serve the same purpose anyway.

      Any other standard Chinese phrases for bad play? What do they say when they push a heavy backspin serve in the bottom of the net? Or popup a no-spin and get killed?

      This made me want to learn some more chinese TT vocabulary. Cho doesn't really fit my skillset.

      What is chinese for when you try to win a cheap point with a long fast serve and it goes off the table? That one I could use.
