O is for Onomatopoeia – #AtoZChallenge

Today is a fun one: onomatopoeia.  Yes, it’s a mouthful!

This funny word has a very simple meaning.  Onomatopoeia are words that sound similar to the word it describes.  For instance, a bee buzzes, right?  So, onomatopoeia would be, “The bee goes — buzz buzz!”

Other such onomatopoeia words are:

  • grunt
  • caw
  • smash
  • whoosh
  • bang
  • click-clack
  • swish
  • bloop
  • splash
  • squirt
  • tee-hee

I’m sure you get the idea!  Do you use onomatopoeia in your writing?  What’s your favorite?
