Cacophony

Definition:
A cacophony in literature refers to the use of words and phrases that imply strong, harsh sounds within the phrase. These words have jarring and dissonant sounds that create a disturbing, objectionable atmosphere.

Example:
His fingers rapped and pounded the door, and his foot thumped against the yellowing wood.

  1. You would mostly find cacophony in comic books and such. Basically it is when you make a noise that sounds like what your describing, for example ‘Bang! Goes the drum’ or ‘Zoom’ when some thing goes really fast.

    Also I’m in 8th grade. My Teacher is the best. Good luck, peeps. º-º *thumbs up*
