Ever heard of onomatopeia ??????
Maybe not. But once I explain it, you will recognize what the word stands for:)
And why, do you ask, does this strange word have anything to do with words that have 3 consecutive
Ever listen to a radiator giving off steam??
Ever taste something so totally yummy???
Ever get stuck in a pile of frozen snow????
What does the steam from a radiator sound like ???? If you were to mimic the sound it would be hzzzz
A hissing sound- it has 3 letters in a row
When something tastes yummy what sound do you make? Is it hmmm?
A sound that when you do it you know something is yummy
When you get stuck in something really cold what sound do you make??
Is it brrr ?
So the bottom line here is although the rules of English grammar don't accept 3-letter words,
if we use the device onomatopoeia, which means imitation of a sound, we can find 3-letter words
Go ahead- now you try it- a sound for silence??
