I don't understand how to use moue in a sentence. I know the definition of moue:
noun - a little grimace : pout
It says it is a noun, but whenever I've seen it used, it always comes off verb-like, unless I'm misreading.
With a moue of discontent, he set down his mug upon the table at his elbow and rubbed his hands through his hair, mussing it so that it would probably be horribly tangled when he tried to brush it later.
Either way, I still don't understand how to use this word properly. Do you always say 'moue of x' or can it be used by itself like 'His moue showed how unhappy he was'?
