What Are Onomatopoeia Words?

Onomatopoeia is a word that imitates its real-life counterpart. For example, “crunch” is the word people typically use when they crunch their food. However, “crunch” is not a word that can be found in a dictionary. Onomatopoeia sounds are words that are made up so that it sounds like something. So, for example, the word “squeal” is the sound a bee makes. Now, “squeal” is not a word that can be found in a dictionary.
