An umloud is one way at holding conversational reins while waiting for inspiration to hit in between actually having anything to say. “I believe that what so forth and however well UMMMMM therefore we should well we should y’know UMMMMM and…” Like the two dotted German umlaut above a vowel – for it is certainly not a period, nor is it the ellipsis that allow us to fill in our own ending -- the umloud is slurred for an umpteenth amount of m’s until outside affirmation “you’re right, I’m with you” frees this führer of phrases with an ohm for at least a few spaces.
