(The asterisks [*], as seen in IM conversations, are used to representation a performance of the action.)

(The circumflex accent [^], or carot, as it's commonly called, is meant to read "raised to the _______ power," where the number [or letter] following it is placed in the blank.)

("Raised to the ______ power" is a mathematical phrase meaning to multiply the entity to which the circumflex accent applies [commonly called the "base"] by itself the number of times indicated in the number following the circumflex accent [called the "exponent"].)

(Sigh: 1a. To exhale audibly in a long deep breath, as in weariness or relief. b. To emit a similar sound: willows sighing in the wind. 2. To feel longing or grief; yearn: sighing for their lost youth.)
