Last week’s question

Which term describes a word that imitates the sound it represents?

a. Heteronym
b. Homograph
c. Onomatopoeia
d. Oxymoron

The correct answer is C. Onomatopoeia, from the Greek for “sound making”, is a word that imitates the sound it represents. Heteronyms are words that are spelled identically but have different meanings when pronounced differently. A homograph is a word or a group of words that share the same written form but have different meanings. An oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms.
