Hi there,

This is my first post, sorry if it is in the wrong area.

I am looking for the name of the word, for example an Oxymoron - where it is conjoining contradictory terms.

The word I am looking for, is where the word sounds the same as what it is being described. Eg. Splash, Boom...etc.

Thanks in advance.
You mean onomatopeic sounds? It would be wonderful to have a list of them.
Hi Maj,

Thanks for that. I cannot believe I couldn't remember that. Looks like I need to visit my English class again...
