im doing an essay and im confussed
how does it create the feeling of fear?
Onomatopoeia is when a word imitates a sound, like ‘woof’ or ‘bang’. Depending on the context in which it is used, it could create a sense of emotion, in this case fear. E.g. “The snake hissed its way up the man’s leg and began to tangle itself around him.”
What Does Onomatopoeia
It’s called “sound sense.”
It’s when the “word” we assign to a sound replicates or describes the sound, like “buzz” for the sound a flying insect makes, or “hiss” for the sound a snake makes.
Onomatopoeia doesn’t always create a feeling of fear.
it helps create a more vivid picture, just like details.
(sounds like a whoosh, doesn’t it?)
hope this helps(:
