Day 12: Onomatopoeia

Today’s weather, in a word: drizzly.

Don’t you love words that sound like the thing they are?

What’s your favorite onomatopoeia?

My favorites, in English:

Chickadee (this is the sound they make, sounds just like it)
Sploosh. Did I just make up a word?? Hint: it can happen in the toilet.

In German:

Schwung ~ meaning speed or momentum.
