Onomatopoeia Watch


By the late, great Tibor Kalman.

From the website:

Onomatopoeia: The term used to describe words whose pronunciations suggest their meaning (eg, meow, buzz).

Here symbols suggest the sound of the numbers:

3 = tree (three)

5 = hand (5 fingers)

9 = cat (9 lives)

12 = Eggs (dozen/12)
