    One word that is not a system but used by many in various organizations: so if you see it or hear it it means:

    OOOOSH or any of its spellings it means:
    yes, no, your correct, i understand, please hit me again Sensie or Please don't hit me again, I love you, I hate this exercise,ETC.
    sorry just thought I would add this to the impressive list of school/system names
