Bang crash zoom

Updated: Nov 2, 2021


Which literary device would you use to describe the sound fireworks make? Examples include bang, crash and zoom.

You can use onomatopoeia to describe the sound the fireworks make.



Watch the short firework video above and listen out for some examples.

Onomatopoeia is a word that mimics the sound of the object or action it refers to. Think of onomatopoeia as a sound effects device.

Can you think of any other examples of onomatopoeia? Record the audio in a video or type some of the sounds as words. Please post your ideas in the comments section right at the very bottom of this post. Thanks!
