Onomatopoeia (/ˌɒnəˌmætəˈpɪə/) refers to words modelled on a sound.
Examples in English include; hiccup", "zoom", “bang", boom, pow, crash, pop, squelch, zap, beep, bleep, whoosh, snap, crackle, cackle, haha, crack, crunch, wham, scrunch, splash, and burp, etc.
Onomatopoeia are easily remembered and have been used as mnemonics in publicity and advertising campaigns for road safety ("clunk click, every trip" - referring to the “click" of the seatbelt after the “clunk" of the car door) or for Rice Krispies cereals ("snap, crackle, pop").
