wooka

adjective; sound symbolism
Super; ultra; uber. The word “wooka” has highly similar vowel sounds to all three of these possible synonyms, revealing a possible mechanism for its derivation. Some people make the sound “woo” when they are excited. It is possible that the word “wooka” was intended to capture this emotion of excitement about something extreme. Also, “wooka” has the same vowel sound, albeit modified by its neighboring consonants in different ways, in all the synonyms listed above; it seems quite plausible that these words: super, ultra, and uber, had a significant impact on the formation of the word “wooka.”
 
That was a truly enlightening experience; it was wooka spiritual!
