  3. Many words could be used. Are you studying words that are examples of onomateopia? Those are words that sound like the phenomemon they are describing. You can even invent your own. In your case, "whoosh" or "thwang" might represent the bow sound, and "thud" or "thwap" might represent the sound of the arrow hitting the target. There are probably better words, and I may have just invented two.

  4. I misspelled "Onomatopoeia". It describes the kinds of words you are looking for, not the bow and arrow sounds themselves.
