A form of audible punctuation usually indicating disbelief or sarcasm. Exhalatives are usually added to the end of a sarcastic sentence. Various dialects can indicate various nuances of the level of distrust or sarcasm. Exhalatives are formed by forcing a short exhale through pursed lips sounding like "pfffff" or through the tongue pressed against the roof of the mouth creating "Pssssh" or "Chsssh" or a combination.
