An onomatopoeia is a figure of speech where somewhere in the sentence, there is a any word that imitates the word it is describing. Examples of sound words are:

  • Boom
  • Pow
  • Cluck
  • Ding
  • Bam
  • Creak
  • Achoo
  • Belch
  • Cuckoo
  • moo
  • woof
  • quack
  • bam
  • zap
  • bing
  • ting
  • meow
  • oink
  • slap
  • chirp
  • zoink
  • mumble
  • rumble

onomatopoeia in a sentence:

The cat meowed to his owner for something to eat.

Meowed is the onomatopoeia.
