I always have to research the best word to describe a sound and hence thought that I would do a glossary to help authors as well as readers. You can also find some onomatopoeia on wiki here. and some interjections on wiki here.

I will keep adding to this list as I go along writing 🙂


Admiration: Awe

Angry: Grr

Breezing: Brr

Frustrated: Urg

Pain: Ah

Realised you have done something stupidly: Uh oh

Surprised: Oh

Telling someone off or to stop: Oi

Thinking: Hmm

Quieting someone: Shush
