When you see a cute animal or something and you let out a "Dawww", or something similar, what's the verb to describe it?
The obligatory social response is to coo over cute animals and all babies.
1.1 (of a person) speak in a soft gentle voice.
- ‘Being petless, I find it hard enough when people start cooing about their cats.’
- ‘Hopefully, I'll then turn all mushy and gooey as I start cooing, "Aw, look at his little hands!"’
