Traditionally it is spelled : pbbbbt The number of b’s to change the length. Sometimes an additional t is placed at the end.

I joined today and asked my first question. The responses where fast and helpful. I actually chose a combination and would like to thank everyone and show you what I came up with. I don’t see a reply box, so here I am in the answer box. I hope that this is OK and not against the rules.

That said, I thank all of you for your contribution. As often a I ‘did’ it, I never uncovered the B’s, and I realized that I start with a P. This is my version. PthhhbbBBBBbbthb

What a strange coincidence… this is my wallpaper for my iPod. Berkeley Breathed’s, Opus the penguin giving himself a ‘belly phart’. Enjoy. :)

There aren’t any letters for the sound of placing ones tongue between their teeth and blowing. Just like there is no letter for whistling. At least not in English.
