If its an especially mucous-packed one: hoooaaacckkkk…ckkk..kk…kthwuthwp.

If its more saliva based: whiiiiickkkk..whplthbxzzz.

Saw a Calvin & Hobbes recently with Calvin hocking something up. Watterson was always great at onamatopoeia.

Oh well, still lovin’ the greatness that is C&H

Actually, the word “hawking” is onomatopoeic, isn’t it? After the sound you make doing it?

I just stumbled onto this thread, and now have broadened my vocabulary in a new and surprising way. Thanks! That was fun!
