Such a simple thing to say... especially after asking what some particular dance that I hadn't seen before was, and getting the name as an answer.

It took me an extra moment after I had said "Ah!" that I realised I really wasn't much more informed than before :-)

But isn't that something that we often do? We produce some sound, some acknowledgement that we've received information.

In my own ears, though, the "Ah!" gave the message that I had understood everything, while the truth was that I just got a name...

Of course, I did ask further and got to know that it was a Hungarian dance, their kind of folk dance that comes in a number of varieties, like polskas are the common form in Sweden. (and by now, I've totally forgotten the name ;-))
