Blurb! Sploosh! Eereek. . . The last one is the sound a squeaky door makes. I love words that sound like stuff. I use them in my writing all the time -- possibly too much. And I drive my editors nuts as they try to figure out if my bleeps and nickity-nicks need to be italicized.
My current writing is about a musician. I'm using tremendous self-restraint to limit my onomatopoeia.
By the way, if you type onomatopoeia in Microsoft Word, and then do a spell check, it asks you if you meant to type tomato. Maybe I did. Tomato is much easier to spell and more people are familiar with the word.
So when my editor say, "Gem, what the heck is scritchity," I'll say it's a tomato.
