The analysis presented in the article constitutes a part of the research conducted by the author on the linguistic strategies used to describe musical auditory sensations. The analysis is based on utterances made by musicians who shared their impressions concerning the sounds produced by percussion instruments on Internet websites of Polish musical journals and on blogs. Among the linguistic means noted in the musicians’ utterances one can find onomatopoeic words borrowed from English, and it is these borrowings that constitute the object of analysis of the present paper. They are approached from the perspective of the relationship between the words’ phonological structure and the acoustic features of the imitated sounds. They are also examined from the point of view of the sound sources that the onomatopoeic words imitate. Additionally, the analysis discusses the issue of adaptation of these borrowings in Polish.
