# the formation of a word, as cuckoo, meow, honk, or boom, by imitation of a sound made by or associated with its referent.
- a word so formed.
- the use of imitative and naturally suggestive words for rhetorical, dramatic, or poetic effect. 
Onomatopoeias and various sound effects are what many conservative rednecks and country bumpkins use when telling their latest hunting stories or attempting to make a joke. It isn't their fault though, most conservatives are born with no sense of humor and those who are have very bad ones.
