8 Apr

When you read cartoons, you often see words like “whoosh”, “splat”, “boing” etc., which represent a sound. For example, you can hear “boing” when something is bouncing, and “whoosh” when something moves very fast. Words which look like the sound that they make are called Onomatopoeia.

English - onomatopoeia
