It's only since the rise of social media that we have had an opportunity to study these elongated exclamations, said scientists at the University of Vermont Burlington, who started collecting tweets back in 2008 when they first noticed that stretched words like "hahaha" and "duuuuude" were being used quite commonly.

Since then with the aid of computers, they have analyzed some 100 billion tweets generated between September 2008 and December 2016 to catalog drawn-out words and discover whether there are any patterns in the way we use them.

"We were doing something a bit silly and playful, and that's part of science. You never know what you might find," said Peter Dodds, a professor at the University of Vermont's department of mathematics and statistics.

The authors said their work showed how everyday linguistic patterns differed from formal written language and could pave the way for elongated words to be included in dictionaries.

They found that words that people tend to stretch aren't just a "big disorganized mess." In fact, they have a regular distribution in terms of how much a word stretches and which part of the word is stretched.

For example, "ha" has a high degree of balance with the "h" and the "a" repeated just about equally. While "goal" as a whole word is stretchy, it's less balanced, with the "g" not stretched as much and the "o" repeated more than any other letter in the word.
