Talk:bling bling

This is not onomatopoeia, as the shine of ostentatious jewelry does not actually make a sound.

Shouldn't it be IPA /bliŋ bliŋ/ (as an imitation of Jamaican)? --Ooswesthoesbes 18:40, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

I doubt most people pronounce it that way, though, e.g. people like me who learned it from newspapers. Equinox 18:47, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
All right :) I personally hear "bling bling" more often, but what you say makes sense indeed. --Ooswesthoesbes 16:20, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
