Synonyms of "Hacking" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Hacking cough and Dry cough ?
A: A hacking cough is sort of like a smoker's cough or when a cat is trying to cough up a hairball. It is that type of cough where it is like they are trying to cough up something, but it just won't come out, so they do this sort of deep, unpleasant cough that keeps going over and over, and usually they just have to get it to calm down because it might not actually cough anything up so it feels like it could keep going forever. It is a miserable sound and not very fun to experience either. A hacking cough could be wet or dry, I think. It often means there is something deep in the lungs, like pneumonia or whooping cough (a specific illness) or that it is someone who smokes too many cigarettes for years. Stuff like that. Probably something to see a doctor about if it lasts for more than a day or two, or if it was getting worse.

A dry cough is just a shallow, dry, empty sort of cough. It doesn't go on for very long, or very severe. It might just be a tickle in your throat that won't go away. It doesn't sound or feel wet at all. Just a dry, shallow, mild cough. It is like clearing your throat when your throat is already clear.

A wet cough is when there is a lot of mucus in your throat, so it makes a more wet sound when you cough and you can feel things move around when you cough. People tend to get those with a normal cold or flu, so most people have experienced a cough like that. Because it's pretty common when you get sick.
