Thursday Threesome
::Wuthering Heights (and lows):: Onesome: Wuthering-- What kind of word is that anyway? Do you have a word you think is just strange? "Kangaroo" comes to mind ... onomatopoeia In rhetoric, linguistics and poetry, onomatopoeia is a figure of speech that employs a word, or occasionally, a grouping of words, that imitates, echoes, or suggests the object it is describing, such as "bang", "click", "fizz", "hush" or "buzz", or animal noises such as "moo", "quack" or "meow". They are also a very common feature of comic strip writing, where words such as "Pow", or "Ka-pwing" help the reader to better imagine what is being described, and make up for the lack of literary description. Twosome: Heights-- Are you afraid of them or can you dance along the rooftop coping like a character in a movie? I'm not afraid of heights. I'm not going to go dancing on the rooftops either. Threesome: (and lows)-- What kind of insect or bug sends you low and scurrying? Do spiders do that to you? Wasps? ...or do you just squish everything that "bugs" you? I'm not afraid of bugs. Just keep the snakes away from me, and I'll be fine.
