The interjection 'oh' is a common expression used in German to convey surprise, astonishment, or disappointment. It is often used to express an emotional reaction to something unexpected or unfortunate.

In spoken language, the tone and length of the 'oh' can vary depending on the intensity of the emotion being expressed. A longer 'oh' with a rising pitch may indicate a stronger reaction, while a shorter 'oh' with a neutral tone may simply convey mild surprise.
