S-A-T WORD OF THE DAY:  

 

Seal of Biliteracy Fun Fact:

Despite that, onomatopoeias are not shared across languages. Rice Krispies in the United States go 'snap, crackle, and pop.' But in Germany, they go 'Knisper! Knasper! Knusper!' In France, they go 'Cric! Crac! Croc!' and in Spain, they go 'Cris! Cras! Cros!' Can you say Onomatopoeia 5 times fast?
