wtlau commented on the word pertussis
I think it fits the definition; The word has the qualities of a cough. No different than the word buzz.More to the point, it's what you would say if you coughed in the middle of saying "per-ussis".

It's a great word because of the plosive "t".I like onomatopoeia.
