Hi,
How would you describe the sound of a bell in Bengali? toong-toong (টুং-টুং) or toong-taang (টুং-টাং)? Or anything else?

Thanks in advance for any input!

The second one sounds better for a bell. Aug 2, 2008

Both toong-toong (টুং-টুং) or toong-taang (টুং-টাং) are correct for tinny sound. But the first one represents the tinniest sound like গেলাসে চামচ দিয়ে টুং টুং করে আওয়াজ করা। The second one is better for a bell and it also represents sweet sound.
ঘন্টাটা টুং টাং করে বেজে উঠল
পিয়ানোর টুং টাং শব্দ শোনা যাচ্ছে
