how do you spell that??

some of my favorite words are e-n-c-y-c-l-o-p-e-d-i-a, superlative, onomatopoeia, friend, Christmas, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,
... i could go on ...

onomatopoeia: "the formation of a word, as cuckoo or boom, by imitation of a sound made by or associated with its referent."

boink, zing, splat, clipclop ...

i love words that are a sound!!

pssst, bleh, hmm, ew, phew... all words that to be fully appreciated need to be said aloud - try it!

occasionally i run across a sound that isn't commonly 'written', forcing me to make it up if i want to share it in writing.

say for instance, i get a text from my sister that begs for a barfing sound reply ... BARF just doesn't quite get the true feeling across ... so this is what i sent:

Hhuumbf

sound it out ... put your fingers to your lips as you say it ... funny, huh.

feel free to use it!

Cooked to raw clever. Wrote again, though not like the way, it will bring many benefits. Writing will gradually continue to touch the bottom of literary and artistic creation. Wastebasket child is my close friend, often to discard the waste inside it still is issued, there will be a successful day.
