Word of the day for Thursday, August 29th

I may have found my favorite onomotopoeia.

Borborygmus is a fancy word for stomach rumbling. It may not sound so much like an onomotopoeia if you hear the high female voice on wordsmith.org pronounce it, but just pretend it’s being said by Clarence “Frogman” Henry and you’ve got something crazy going on in your gut. Actually, I think Clarence “Frogman” Henry could make any word sound like an onomotopoeia for stomach rumbling, but you and I and the other guy should go with borborygmus.
