In the teachers’ room here at Atlas I am surrounded by sounds: clicks, hums, smacks, clatters, mumbles, moans, knocks, plops, hisses, and even squeaks and squelches (someone’s got wet shoes outside the window).

No crackles though!

What could cause such a racket?  Leave a comment to suggest possible sources.

And …

How many other noise and sound words can you think of?  What makes those noises and sounds and where can you hear them? Which ones are positive and which negative?
