This rhetorical device deserves an award for using every vowel except one. Even though it's so challenging to spell, its meaning is fairly easy to remember: turning sounds into words. Now it's time for a few examples!
I'm sure you get the idea by now. Can you think of more onomatopoeia words yourself? This is a particularly fun exercise for young children. And a helpful little exercise for adult writers too!
I wish you all a great, healthy week ahead. I'll be back next Sunday with another Spoonful of Grammar.
