Weekend Competition: What's the Onomatopoeia? - NYTimes.com

This weekend you can win a prize by coming up with the coolest onomatopoeia at NYtimes.com

Weekend Competition: What's the Onomatopoeia? - NYTimes.com: "Weekend Competition: What’s the Onomatopoeia?
This weekend, co-vocabularists are invited to dance across their keyboards to provide the spelling of the sounds that surround us.

We are used to the Kappow! and Shazam! of cartoon violence, and to the Clunk! Click! of seat-belt safety.

But what of the Dwoiiinnnnnnnngggggggig! when a ruler is strummed against a table-top?

Or the Flumppf! of a wad of mail as it falls from the letter-box?

The usual prizes will be awarded for unusual sounds and experimental spellings."
