What do these onomotopoieac words become when they are used in sentences in the following fashion? Is there a particular term for them.
"The gun booms the bullet out."
"The clock clickers away."
These are both odd uses. and I found the first in a fantasy book and the latter I heard on Bloomberg news. In the case of the novel, it seems like artistic license but even in that case, there has to be some precedence for such use.
At first I thought they would just be another expression of onotopoiea but it doesn't seem to be along those lines. So what would we call that.
