Depends

It depends, if it is used as a noun then no, if it is used as a verb then no. However, if it is used to imitate a sound then it is considered onomatopoeia.

It depends

It depends in how you use it. If it is " the whip was dusty" it isn't, put if it is "It just went WHIP" then it's onomatopoeia.

Down sank the bell, with a gurgling sound.
And
The bubbles rose and burst around.

Discreet Onomatopoeias?

Can't some words be onomatopeoias even though they aren't exactly commonly considered as such? Some poetry seems to use more abstract forms of onomatopeoeia.

Boom !

Great Choice Of Onomatopeia

Actual Words

From what I understand, they have to be actual words which have sound, and not made-up words which exist just to mimic a sound, correct?
