noun; sound symbolism
A sudden understand or realization, usually after exposure to new or novel information. This word uses an expression and connects it with the processes going on in our brain. When we suddenly understand something, we say "ah-hah." An ah-hah, then, is used to capture the state of realization.
If these lectures have given you any ah-hahs, give yourself a point.
