Onomatopoeia
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     There is a six-syllable word that would stump many spelling bee students. It is pronounced on-uh-mat-uh-PEE-uh, and it is spelled o-n-o-m-a-t-o-p-o-e-i-a. Those twelve letters spell out a noun whose meaning is "a word that sounds like the sound it refers to." Onomatopoeia is a vocal imitation of the sound it describes, such as "beep" or "plop" or "ding-dong." When you write sound effects or noises, you are using onomatopoeia.
 
2     Onomatopoeia can describe the sounds animals make. It can describe mechanical sounds and sounds in nature. An onomatopoeia for the sound of rushing air is "whoosh." Graphic novels and comic strips often employ the use of onomatopoeia as well.
