Definition: Spanish Onomatopoeia is the formation of words that people use for representing the sound of animals or things.

Onomatopoeia in Spanish

The onomatopoeia isn’t the same for all languages and cultures because they interpret each sound by their own way; for example when people make the onomatopoeia for a frog, they have different answers such as: “coa-coa” by French, “gae-gool-gae-gool” by Korean, “!berp!” by Argentina, and “ribbit” by United States.

Each onomatopoeia has a special verb that designates the use of the onomatopoeia.
