Is this a word?
Yes the forms Onomatopoeia and Onomatopoeic are both used. Roar is an example. Sounds like the function it is describing.

The former is more common. Its a word I enjoy, (Sad) like Oxymoron.

I thoroughly enjoy the English language. It is the language of hero's and still quite unequaled. Unlike most of our other achievements.

Although worldwide it presence is down to America rather than England latterly.

Caretaker PM is now in power in Greece, and taking pains to tell everyone there isn't a bank panic. Has he been talking to our government about how to cause a panic?

June 17th also penned in for next Greek elections and the anti-austerity leftists are posed to win. They are promising a juggling act of ditching the loans but staying in the Euro rofl

As Sir Humphrey used to say, "Never believe anything until it is officially denied".

Guardian reporting shares in Spain's Bankia have been suspended after falling 30% on news that more than a billion Euros have been withdrawn since the bank was part nationalised. That worked well then.

I think it was just on the radio that Greece are leaving the Euro and going to the Drachma as of tomorrow. Initial exchange rate 1:1.

Ah seems the Jeremy Vine show was a discussion about 'what if it leaves', I should have listened a bit more carefully.

Indeed you should! That sort of information could cause Steffan to spontaneously combust !!

Who is noticable by his absense here for a little while, maybe he already has !?
