Tech _hay_

There's a root in Proto-Nostratic I really want to use in Tech: *hay (an
interjection expressing surprise, amazement, grief, regret etc.)  But not only
as an interjection, but also as a case prefix:

borg "war"
hävorg "what a war", "oh war" [ä = a umlaut]

This is not the vocative case; it's something else, and I need a good Latinate
name for it.
