Onomatopoeic word: Bark

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Do you know the sound a dog makes when it’s trying to “talk”? That’s called a bark. Sometimes we duplicate the actual barking sound by writing bark, arf, ruff, or even woof. All of this is dog barking.

In human speech a bark is a loudly or angrily spoken word that resembles a bark. Example: Giorgio barked instructions to his secretary. Barking can also describe when someone calls or shouts out in order to advertise something. "Buy this!" "Low price!" "Great deal!"
