An onomatopoeia or onomatopœia, from the Greek ???????????? (????? for “name” and ????? for “I make”), is a word that imitates or suggests the source of the sound that it describes. Onomatopoeia (as anuncountable noun) refers to the property of such words. Common occurrences of onomatopoeias include animal noises, such as “oink” or “meow” or “roar”. Onomatopoeias are not universally the same across all languages; they conform to some extent to the broader linguistic system they are part of; hence the sound of a clock may be tick tock in English and tik tak in Dutch or tic-tac in French.


somehow different from ideophone.

just read that and see what spelling of a fart your brain will come up with.
