You know, it's spelled W-H-O-A.

Like "who" with an A on the end.

Just saying. Whoa!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11330901

clearly you did not read tintin.

I was down in Oxford the other week. My brother is studying there, and we’d just been to the Tintin exhibition at Greenwich.

He pointed something out to me about Snowy's speech, and then showed me an essay that a friend wrote about it for her English degree.

In English, Snowy should go “Woof woof!”, the sounds dogs make in English, but he actually goes “Woah woah!”, the sound dogs make in French.

whoa and woah
If there is one arena in which Better Half is not my better, it's spelling. It's not that he's a particularly bad speller, it's just that I like to think of myself as a particularly good one. So, at least a couple of years ago, I rolled my eyes and corrected him when he wrote an interjection meaning 'stop, wait!' as woah! That I can remember correcting BH some years later is indicative of the sadness of my life and my need to always be right, which is pretty hard to be if you're me. I suppose I was reliving 'times I've been right and BH has been wrong' because of another instance of my absolute disability when it comes to accents. I spent some time the other day insisting that a food critic on the television was French, when, in fact, he's Irish. He only dresses French. So, I cling to my 'being right' memories with the tenacity of a starving octopus.
