is lisp onomatopoeic??
Damn you flatmate! If a question goes in my head and I can’t find the answer, I find it really hard to let go…
it seemed quite an easy question: is “lisp” an onomatopoeic word? (Does it sound like the thing its describing…)
Hmmm… time to consult some experts…
It might be, but I don’t think so, because it doesn’t sound like what it describes! Like plop for example. (a Teacher)
I wouldn’t say it was. People with lisps would prounounce “lisp” like “lithp”. (an English language undergraduate)
What do you think? Is it… or not… I keep changing my mind!
