What's the wookie sound?

Onomatopoeia aficionados, I'm totally stumped. How do you spell the sound a wookie makes?

Hey, that's not bad at all! If the double 'r' is pronounced as a "rolling r" then it can certainly work.

Hm... maybe the ultimate solution is to start with that text, do some genetic algorithm mutation and crossover, hook the results up to a voice synthesizer, and the fitness function is comparing the result to an actual wookie sound and indicating a measure of how close it is. Let it run for a number of generations and see what results! If I had the time, that would be a fun project. :)
