Pupils playing with the names of sounds in the Polish language
The article deals with sound values of the Polish language described with the idea of using them in the teaching of Polish. The author compiles a list of onomatopoeic words — nouns, verbs, interjections and idioms — suggesting ideas for exercises to be used in classroom. Teachers are encouraged to use the linguistic material provided, rhymes, puns and linguistic jokes, which are sometimes unintentional. This will enable them to move from “humour from pupils’ notebooks”, betraying the incompetence of not only pupils but also their teachers, to methodical playing with words.
