Hiccups are a disease of the Respiratory System.
Normally a person breathes by taking in air and breathing it out through the nose or mouth.
This operation is rhythmic, smooth and unconscious.
When this rhythm is upset by a sudden, sharp intake of air it is a hiccup.
Hiccups normally occur for some time at regular intervals. Therefore, they are normally expressed as a plural, Hiccups.
It sounds like an aborted sneeze.
The word ' hiccup ' is an onomatopoeia; the word itself sounds like the actual intake of air.
They are usually just a minor nuisance, but prolonged hiccups can become a major medical problem.
