Onomatopoeic words in sentences

The sack fell into the river with a splash.

He was badly injured in a car crash.

Many onomatopoeic words have their own meanings in addition to the sounds they represent.

For example, the word ‘whisper’ conveys both the wispy or breathy sound of people talking gently and the action of individuals talking quietly.

Onomatopoeia occurs in comic books. 

From ‘ping’, ‘wham’ and ‘ha ha ha’ to ‘boing’, ‘squelch’, ‘whizz’ and ‘scoosh’, a lot like that.

Onomatopoeias are words that are both useful and auditory-stimulating. Their ability to elicit meaning stems from their ability to imitate the sounds they represent.  Because language can only express sensory details through the filter of imagination, writers must occasionally employ onomatopoeia to convey a more precise meaning.
