Great article. There were so many new terms my head's spinning. I'll probably consider using some, maybe even all, of these devices, but hanged if I'll be able to remember what half of them are called. Where have I been all my life?

There are a couple I like in particular: onomat-thingy, hyperbole, um, some of the others ... but it's fun to read them and then recognise what it is you do already!

Onomatopoeia, Cage! :D I don't think it's hard to pronounce, but I've heard it done several times. It's "Oh-no-ma-toe-PAY-ah"; try it a few times and you'll see what I mean.

Here is a short (but funny) video about onomatopoeia. https://gawker.com/5685838/mel-brooks-- ... ar-old-man :)

It's not hard to pronounce, it just sounds and reads like a word that does something really, really special - and all it does it make rude noises!
