  • 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.
