A work from “Words I Learnt From The English Class”.
This one is ‘Onomatopoeia’ which is a word that sounds like the word it’s describing like: ‘buzz’ ‘ping’ or ‘hiss’ etc.
The word ‘boong’ is a racist word for an Australian Aboriginal and also relates to a racist joke about the sound an Aborigine makes when it hits the bullbar of your car. A popular joke to tell in my presence whilst at school. The vibration is to reflect this onomatopoeic word but also the jolt that went through my body when realising the nature of these ‘humorous’ jokes.
