 I love Webster's (NID3) solution to the phonetics of 'uh-huh':  within the
usual backslashes we find not the usual symbols or any approximation
thereof, but the prose statement \a disyllabic sound with m-sounds at the
beginning & end, an h-like interval of voicelessness between, & heavier
stress on the first member...\

Meaning they don't consider it phonemic.
