I can't explain it well but...

#1 Post by OtomeWeekend » Wed Dec 28, 2011 9:19 pm

can anyone give me a link to a website for list of words made like "ARRRGGH!!!" or something like that? I'm not a native speaker and I don't know how to call it or explain it too Dx

Examples:
-Argh
-Oh
-hiccup
-eh?
-eeek!!
-tsk
or something like that. was it onomatopoeia? I'm really sorry i cant remember how it was called. Well, I can do them in japanese like "kya", "che" and etc. but since I'm making an OELVN I want to stick in the english-way...

Sorry if I confused you all Q_Q

It is called onomatopoeia as it's the written form of sound. This site might be useful to you http://www.writtensound.com/index.php?term=human

Aside from onomatopoeia, I think you're also looking for interjections, or spoken words that are used mainly to express an emotion. A quick look on Google gave me this website.

If you're looking for onomatopoeia in general, and since you know the Japanese counterparts, I suggest you try here... This list seems quite comprehensive, so it should be useful ^^ Hope I helped!
