  3. (archaic) An exclamation of grief.
  4. (dated) A sound of hesitation: er, um.

When used to express laughter, the more it is reduplicated, the more it suggests expressive or sincere laughter. A single ha!

In modern and informal usage, reduplication tends to be without spaces. See haha for more information on those forms.
