Suck your teeth

Posted by Taupe on February 27, 2008 at 10:06:

Suck your teeth, click your tongue, cluck, tut, tsk, tchk -- do these all mean the same thing? That is, the percussive sound you make when you place your tongue forward and quickly suction back, in criticism of something? I'm especially interested in hearing about the first phrase, as I'd never heard it until some TV-talk-show women used it like it was a common phrase.
