Essential Literary Terms by Sharon Hamilton

Page 221 - Onomatopoeia

A word or phrase that seems to imitate the sound it denotes (example: bang, creak, murmur)


I suck at onomatopeia. Honestly, I don't think that I've ever actually used it properly. I always try to make little clever sentences in my writing with onomatopoeia words and I never do it right. I'm basically slow in general when it comes to picking up on when onomatopoeia is being used too...I'm sticking with alliteration, it's by BFF.
