meow! A shotgun goes
bang! A doorbell goes
ding dong! When we imitate sounds, we call those words
onomatopoeia. In this fun lesson, I will teach you some useful English words that imitate sounds and noises made by different people, animals, objects, and even the noises made by a well-known breakfast cereal! This will make your conversations more animated and descriptive. You will also encounter these words when reading novels and comic books. Onomatopoeia are NOT the same in every language, so after watching, do the quiz to see if you recognize these sounds in English!
This lesson helps me to learn more about sounds from the life ,very intereting and useful to me.thanks Gill^^
From now on I’ll read comics from a different perspective, that’s sure!
I enjoyed a lot. It was a very enjoyable lesson, I must say . And you are my most cutiest Teacher ☺ ❤
Such a precious collection about vocabulary. It’s shows great experience that those gained on their life and conveyed messages for others.
So M Gill, did language originate from imitating sounds?
A quiet and nice lesson by a quiet and nice professor. Thanks Gill.
nice lesson, but very difficult
Excellent lesson god bless you Gill
Very useful and fun lesson !
Thanks Gill!!Nice lesson!
This lesson has made me remember that when i was very young and i was living in a country place, sometime I yowled to the moon togheter my wolf dog.
I find that the connection of these onomatopeic words (like every word in effect) with personal events could make them more easy to remember.
Thanks very much like always Gill.
Excellent lesson! Thank you, Gill.
If you want to hear some of the words used in a song (such as moan, mutter, sputter), make sure to check out the sorrowful song “Memory” from the musical “Cats” composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. There’re even different versions of the song. It’s been also translated into several languages. E.g. “Recuerdo” in Spanish; in Hungarian it was sang by Jimmy Zámbó – “Éjfél” (Midnight).
*it was sung. / No edit option, sorry :)
Thank you David !

Nice lesson, Gill! The comic book nerd in me loved it.
I remember Batman (1965) broadcast TV, there was fight scenes you can to read onomatopeias: “POW” “CRASH” “SPLASH” I liked so much, so bizarre.
It was super and got correct all of the questions….and thanks a lot for the lesson

Thanks a lot Gill, it’s the right time for this lesson, since we just had a lecture this week in Linguistics concerning the origin of language and one of those theories is “the natural sound theory” in other words: echoic, onomatopoeia. So did language in general appeared thus?
Thanks.I got 10/10.Hurray!

hi,at the beginning of this lesson the teacher said: Today we are going to be looking at…

Gill, it was very fun! :) Thank you so much! All of the sounds (words) is understandable.
How are you? If you want, we can communicate in English. I believe this will improve our language skills. Besides, I know the Russian language too. If you find yourself interested in my suggestion, please write to my e-mail: email@example.com
