OWA-OWA

noun; sound symbolism
A person who is always crying or complaining; a loud whiner. Possible reason used: The usage of the word “owa-owa” is a succinct way of describing a baby’s behavior. My aunt did not have to go into any details about how the baby doesn’t sleep well at night or how he always wants more food. Just two words “owa-owa” explained most of the baby’s behavior. Dictionary entry: Owa-owa, N. (“Stop being an owa-owa. Get off that chair and start working hard if you want to succeed in life.”)
 
“owa-owa.”
Etymology : Type of word formation: Sound symbolism
Source : When I was asking my aunt about her three-month-old baby, she said that he was such an “owa-owa.”
