Onomatopoeia is the creation of a word from the natural sound or association with it. These are incredibly important to know in English, because it will allow you to express yourself creatively when writing, and also help make sense of those descriptions often seen in subtitles. They are around us, everyday and everywhere. Take a look at my Prezi presentation below and check out some common examples, pictures, and descriptions of not only onomatopoeia, but some common language you’ll see in subtitles.
Then, start looking [AND LISTENING] around you. Take the “One Day Onomatopoeia Challenge.” How many examples of onomatopoeia can you identify? Share the number you discovered, and some of them with me in the comment section!
