Question and answer
In modern day monasteries, monks remain silent during certain parts of the day. To which figure can this practice be attributed? Bede Benedict of Nursia Petrarch Scholastica
The Venerable Bede was an English monk renowned for his scholarship. St. Benedict founded the Bendectine order of monks, and his Rule indeed includes an admonishment to economy in speech, as well as certain periods of strict silence, e.g. [ after Compline. Petrarch was a humanist and poet of the early Italian Renaissance, and St. Scholastica is the twin sister of St. Benedict. Although she
was a nun herself, she most likely followed the Rule of her brother. ]

Which poetry term refers to words which sound very similar to the actual sound they make? EXAMPLE: "hum, or "buzz," or "hiss," or "clank" alliteration onomatopoeia simile personification
Weegy: ONOMATOPOEIA refers to words which sound very similar to the actual sound they make example: hum, or buzz, or hiss, [ or clank. An onomatopoeia (sometimes written as onomatopœia) ( pronunciation (US) (help·info), from the Greek ???µat?p???a;[1] ???µa for "name"[2] and p???? for "I make",[3] adjectival form: "onomatopoeic" or "onomatopoetic") is a word that phonetically imitates or suggests the source of the sound that it describes. Onomatopoeia (as an uncountable noun) refers to the property of such words. Common occurrences of onomatopoeias include animal noises such as "oink", "meow", "roar" or "chirp". Onomatopoeias are not the same across all languages; they conform to some extent to the broader linguistic system they are part of; hence the sound of a clock may be tick tock in English, di da in Mandarin, or katchin katchin in Japanese.
