Words That Go Ping: The ridiculously wonderful world of onomatopoeia

Barbara Lasserre

If it goes ‘moo’ then every child knows it’s a cow. If it goes ‘Wham! Bam! Crash!’ we’re in a fast-paced comic. But what goes ‘krknout’?

Barbara Lasserre takes us on a playful journey through the delightful world of words that mimic sounds. Normally relegated to children’s books, cartoons and comedians, she shows how these often ancient words reveal unexpected things about the way we think, speak and act.

A book for anyone who loves playing with words.
