Onomatopoeia is a word that phonetically imitates or suggests the sound it is describing. For example: <br />
• Baa<br />
• Bang<br />
• Beep<br />
• Boom<br />
• Buzz<br />
• Croak<br />
• Hiss<br />
• Meow<br />
• Oink<br />
• Pow<br />
• Shh<br />
• Swish<br />
• Wham<br />
• Swish <br />
• Creek <br />
The adjective onomatopoeic can be used in the sentence 'Woof is an example of onomatopoeia'. The adverb onomatopoeically is used in the sentence 'She lived her life onomatopoeically ...whoopy!' <br />
Onomatopoeia can be used as a linguistic device in many types of writings including jokes. Do you remember the old Knock-Knock jokes, even the name of this type of joke is another example of onomatopoeia. <br />
<br />
What about the joke:<br />
Knock-knock Who's there?<br />
Boo<br />
Boo who?<br />
Don't cry, I was only joking<br />
...you guessed it, another example of onomatopoeia . *Woosh* <br />
<br />
God bless you.............:)
