An Academic Look at GTH

GTH is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Gee Tee Aitch). However, as the abbreviation GTH is typically used for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech, it is not often uttered using its letters.

Although technically an interrogative sentence, GTH is used like an interjection. An interjection is not grammatically related to any other part of the sentence. It is included in a sentence (usually at the start) to express a sentiment such as surprise, disgust, joy, excitement, or enthusiasm. In formal writing, interjections are offset from the surrounding words with commas.
