    • Writers use it to describe a sound and make a sentence more interesting. Rather than simply stating that a noise was heard, it invites the reader to actually hear the noise.

      • Examples:

        • Argh, Bark, Bang, Boom, Buzz, Boing, Bark, Crash, Creak, Click, Chirp, Croak, Ding Dong, Eek, Fizz, Flitter, Groan, Gargle, Gasp, Honk, Hiss, Jangle, Moo, Munch, Meow, Ping, Plop, Quack, Rumble, Ripple, Zoom, Zap.
