A poetic meter wherein each line contains ten syllables, as five repetitions of a two-syllable pattern in which the pronunciation emphasis is on the second syllable.Now, I bet you’ve used onomatopoeia in your writing. Here’s the example Mr. Braiman uses to demonstrate onomatopoeia:
Remarque uses onomatopoeia to suggest the dying soldier’s agony, his last gasp described as a “gurgling rattle.”So, visit Mr. Braiman’s page of Literary Devices. Enjoy the read and bookmark it for future reference.
