A poetry within words
The Dime

What is your current favorite onomatopoeic word? (I recognize 100% that it may be different next year, next summer, tomorrow)

For me, lately, it is crisp. What a wonderfully sharp and hissing word, like a bite of apple.

It's only appropriate that you should ask - because mine's whisper. It's only creatively onomatopoeic, I suppose, but it still counts. It just has so much quiet in it.

pith, the spray of citrus from rind.

Mine goes in a different direction from yours....I would have to say mine is "purr." This onomatopoeic word goes one step further and has it's own degree of rhythmic tangibility. Especially if you say it like Earth Kitt.
