pah

Although long an expression of general disagreement – “Pah! I don’t care what you think!” – “pah” now seems to have found new life as slang for giving someone the finger, usually in a metaphorical sense. The sound occurs in various South Asian slang phrases, and seems to have been lifted out to stand on its own. Unusual to find a fairly innocuous exclamation getting a less savoury meaning.
