What is Onomatopoeia

Literary Device - Onomatopeia

Literary Device – Onomatopeia

Do you ever wonder why children and adults can be entertained with comic books?

In addition to the condensed story, it’s the word on the page that delight and entertain.

In a fight scene in a Batman Comic, you will see one word in colorful brackets. These words, POW, BAM, BONK and others are words mimic the sound of the action it refers to.

Onomatopoeia is a word that mimics the sound of the object or action it refers to. When you pronounce a word, it will mimic its sound. ‘bark,’ ‘chirp,’ ‘purr.’

Find out how you would use this in your writing. Read the rest of my article at Working Writers Club.
