Some of these wikiwords are silly, but I'm sticking with them...
Would it also apply to those late in life with *ahem* "issues"? I sure as heck see enough ads for those things on TV.

onomatopoeia

from onomatopoeia - Wiktionary

Noun

onomatopoeia (countable and uncountable; plural onomatopoeias or onomatopoeiae)
  1. (uncountable) The property of a word of sounding like what it represents.  [quotations ▼]
  2. (countable) A word that sounds like what it represents, such as "gurgle" or "hiss".
  3. (uncountable, rhetoric) The use of language whose sound imitates that which it names.
I think my all time favourite onomatopoetic word is a word I heard on a vacation in Israel. It's the Ivrit (modern Hebrew) word for fly (the insect). It's pronounced "zvuv". I Googled and found the Hebrew spelling:
זְבוּב

Catchy! Were you in advertising in an earlier life?

Just so long as it isn't "catching". After all, you do work with the elderly...

doyenne
noun [C usually singular] /dɔɪˈen/ /dwaɪˈen/

Definition

I don't know about the "respected" part, but I certainly am the doyenne of goofing off.
