excellent, very useful


asu 6 years ago

I's strange how it varies in different languages....for example the 'snip' of a pair of scissors in Chinese is su-su , in Italian cri-cri , in Spanish riqui-riqui , in Portuguese terre-terre and krits-krits in modern Greek.

In English a dog barks 'woof woof, in Chinese it is 'wan wan'.

Thanks susu, Glad you found this hub useful.

And another Thanks to you asu for sharing the different ways the word 'snip' is pronounced in other languages. Great info!

Jen 5 years ago

Love this! I had a pony born a couple days ago. Like her mother, her name is to start with an "O". We have decieded to name her Onomatopoeia so I came here looking for a "barn name" (what we call her on a daily basis). Is whinny an onomatopoeia?


jen 5 years ago

i like this


Jen 5 years ago

copy my name...


BIGCSSHOP profile image

BIGCSSHOP 5 years ago Author

Jen, I am so excited for you! Congratulations on your new pony! The word whinny is a verb, but with a name like Onomatopoeia she'll be the most popular horse in the barn and stables and everywhere. Congratulations again! I like the name Whinny.
