Onomatopoeia is a word that sounds like what it means. They help you hear what is going on. For example, “thud”, “crash”, “bang” and “buzz” are all examples of onomatopoeia. Animal sounds are often onomatopoeic: “roar”, “meow”, “moo”, “cluck”, “oink”1.

Here are some more examples of onomatopoeia:

Buzz: the sound of a bee
Sizzle: the sound of frying food
Hiss: the sound of a snake
Splash: the sound of water hitting something
Crackle: the sound of fire burning
