Onomatopoeia refers to the formation of words, which (when spoken aloud) imitate the sounds related with the things/actions they refer to.

Boom: Bang, explosion, resound, etc.
Purr: Low continuous vibratory sound (especially of a cat), whirr, drone, etc.

The fireworks’ boom frightened the baby.
The cat purred when his master patted him.
