Thread: Onomatopoeia.

    Onomatopoeia.

    Remember that word from grammar school days? Onomatopoeia. Most of us can't even spell it much less define it.

    Here is the definition from Wikipedia:

    is a figure of speech that employs a word, or occasionally, a grouping of words, that imitates, echoes, or suggests the object it is describing, such as "bang" or "click", or animal noises such as "moo", "quack" or "meow".
    How many words can we come up with that fall into this category?

    Clink (a famous prison, but another name for jail because it's the sound the doors make when they are closed).

    Re: Onomatopoeia.

    This is why the old Batman live-action TV show with Adam West and Burt Ward were the best. That show basically created onomatopoeia:

    BANG!
    BOK!
    THWACK!
    THWIP!
    WOOP!
