Onomatopoeia is the formation or use of words such as buzz or murmur that imitate the natural sounds associated withactions they refer to. Other examples are 'boom', 'rattl…e','crackle', 'squawk', and 'snap'. Both verbs and nouns may both fallinto this category. For instance: The duck squawked at the dog. The duck gave a squawk of alarm when the dog approached. * For more detailed information concerning this subject, click onthe related links section indicated below. --- Onomatopoeia is the use of the consonant and vowel sounds of apronounced or "heard" word to imitate, and thereby emphasize orbring to a listener's or reader's imagination, the sounds thatmight actually be heard in what is being described. In that way, it is a literary device used to make writing or speechmore vibrant and effective. It depends on a listener's or reader'sability to hear the sounds of the words. Many words are onomatopoeic in and of themselves, such as "snap"and "scratch." However, the sounds used in speech don't need to beso obvious in order to still constitute onomatopoeia. Some considerations about onomatopoeia have to do with what ournatural sounds of speech remind us of. Phoneticians have classifiedconsonant and vowel sounds, and some basic facts seem to be true. The explosive consonant sounds (such as the sound of b , d , k , p and t ) seem to bringto mind more violent actions or percussive situations. Consider thefollowing sentence: "The horse trotted and clopped along on thecobblestones." In that, you can hear the horse's hooves on the hardroad, if you use your imagination. The sibilant consonant sounds (such as s , sh and f ) have a gentler sound, and are often used indescriptions of water or flowing motions: "The shore was washedwith every wave, revealing shells and sand with every pass." Inthat sentence, you can imagine the sound of ocean waves. The z sound is often used for buzzing sounds, but you don't have touse the word "buzz" to get across the idea: "The bees, a blurryswarming fuzz of wings, are hungry for pollen, and they warn me offwith the threat of stings." There are several n, ng and z sounds in that sentence, which help a reader or listenerto imagine the buzz of a bee. L sounds are often associated with running water. In thatsense, even the word liquid is onomatopoeic. Some research has also been done on how vowel sounds affect emotionor imagination. Vowel sounds range from low-pitched sounds, such as ahhh , to high-pitched, such as eee and ayyy .The lower pitched sounds generally contribute to a perception ofsomberness, slowness or sadness; while the higher pitched soundsgenerally convey a feeling of excitement or urgency: "He tried to steer clear, but the screech of tires and metalpierced his hearing." "The long and awful funeral march wound through the dark autumntoward the graveyard." Those example sentences combine several qualities of tone, cadenceand sound. But they illustrate how vowel sounds also can contributeto onomatopoeic effect. To recognize onomatopoeia, you must hear the words, eitherread aloud or in your imagination. To use onomatopoeia, youmust think of words that contain sounds that you think the readeror listener should hear, that would be appropriate for the actionor situation being described. This is a literary device which consists of a word which soundslike the sound it is representing. Some examples include 'whoosh'and 'boom'. Often times onomatopoeia is used to describe animalnoises such as 'oink' or 'ribbit'. Both are imagery type words thatappeal to the sense of sound. The words essentially imitate orsuggest the source of the sound that describes it. These auditorywords are meant to inspire readers to experience the context of thesentence more fully.
