What in the world is an onomatopoeia?

Started this discussion. Last reply by jhunpari Jul 16, 2013. 3 Replies

It sounds like a medical term, or the name of a South African cactus plant, but it describes words in English whose spoken sound is the same as the actual sound. For example, the words "buzz", "hum",…Continue

We have developed a camel meat industry which has been successful and most recently sent a number of camels to Qatar to help provide a different genetic stream in their camel industry.We have many more…See More

He Who Knows

He who knows not and knows that he knows not, he is wise, respect him.

He who knows and knows that he knows, he is a leader, follow him.

Question: "What sports do you like to play?"



Answer: "Um, I like soccer and um, sometimes I um play tennis. Occasionally, um, I play squash."



Another filler comes in the form… Continue
