Onomatopoeia \On`o*mat`o*p[oe]"ia\, n. [L., fr. Gr. ?; 'o`noma,
'ono`matos, a name + poiei^n to make.] (Philol.)
The formation of words in imitation of sounds; a figure of
speech in which the sound of a word is imitative of the sound
of the thing which the word represents; as, the buzz of bees;
the hiss of a goose; the crackle of fire.
Note: It has been maintained by some philologist that all
primary words, especially names, were formed by
imitation of natural sounds, but this is not believed
[1913 Webster +PJC]
