    I've always wondered like footsteps so the person reading can actually hear them I'e always admired writers who can do that :D

    yeah... but I always thought that was regarded towards more poetic forms...

    Though, I never questioned onomatopoeia, so I don't know, oddly. I never really asked of the term for writing sounds when it came to prose and I remember mostly going over onomatopoeia during poetry.

    Walt Whitman is one of my favorites.
