The purpose of this study is to investigate to which extent nursery teachers are using onomatopoeia and if there are differences in the use of onomatopoeia according to the age of the infants. The method used was an awareness survey and the collaborators were nursery teachers in the nursery. The result of the survey was as follows: the frequency of use of onomatopoeia was the highest for 0 year old infants and was lowering as the age increases. From this, it can be considered that nursery teachers were changing the object used for onomatopoeia according to the age of the infants. In the case of infants with development problems, the result was an increase of using onomatopoeia for the 0 and 1 year old infants.
