when i sneeze i just let the air come out with no attempt to make a noise at the same time.
so why do some people make a noise and more strangley why do they say the word "achoo" ?


Cause some people sneeze through their nose and some sneeze through their mouth. Those that sneeze through their mouth say "achoo". I'm not trying to be funny, it's true! watch people, you'll know what I mean.

When they gasp in the air to sneeze, the voice makes the tone "aaa".

Same for "chuu"ing, because everything is blowing towards the direction out of the mouth, the toungue hits the front teeth whilst a force of air comes out, and because the tongue is blocking some of the air, thus making the "chuu" sound.

I don't know why i explained that in detail.

i think its because people take a big breathe of air before they sneeze the apart the makes a "aa" sound and the "choo" sound is made when the blast of air forces the tongue foward and it touches the teeth. When the exaggerated the whole achoo thats is very annoying, but then again all sneezes are annoying especially 10 sneezes in a row

My sneeze sounds like a cross between a cough and "achoo". So it always sounds like "Wghaaa-chiu !"

i dunno... when i sneeze its more like "aaaahhh (breath in) skdlngklsdagh;ls;adl; (giant sneeze out). not really a distinct phonetic sound... Though i hat this detist assistant once who sneezed "erka....chiew" she is really fat too, so when i heard this pettite wierd sneeze come out of her it was all i could do to not fall of my chair laughing.

I honestly have no idea but I think it is hilarious when people sneeze So funny to see their reactions and listen to what they say Mine is like achioo But sometimes I decide not to sneeze out loud so I just keep it inside me (then I feel really dizzy and my head hurts a bit afterwards xD)
