What is Onomatopoeia? Let’s Find Out!

Onomatopoeia is a word or group of words that imitates or suggests the sound of the thing being described. It is a figure of speech that creates a sensory experience for the reader or listener by using words that sound like what they represent. For example, words like “buzz,” “crackle,” “murmur,” and “hiss” are all examples of onomatopoeia because they imitate the sound of a bee, a fire, a whisper, and a snake, respectively. Onomatopoeia is often used in poetry, literature, and advertising to create vivid and memorable descriptions.
