Two questions
 
Dear All ;-) 
I have  two questions. Would you mind helping me out?
1) I don īt know what my student meant. Here is her sentence:
And forests are destroyed several times speed  of growth speed forests and trees. ( presentation on deforestation)
 
2) What are onomatopeic words for fear?  (I tried to google them but to no avail.)
 
Thanks in advance,
E.

Yes, I īm sure Lynne has it right. I would re-word it as "And forests are being destroyed at several times the speed with which new forests and trees can grow."

Onomatopoeia for fear would be sounds that you make when you īre scared right?  
The best I can think of is EEP! and ACK! (more surprise).  I īve seen a lot of people write "GASP!" and "GULP!" as if they were onomatopoeia.  I think they express the sentiment well, even if they aren īt necessarily onomatopoeia.
 
On a side note, that īs the most I īve ever written onomatopoeia in my life! Hehe!

More ideas for onomatopoeia of fear:
 
Aaargh! is what we say when we scream.
Oh! and Eek! can express surprise.
Ghosts say "woo" for some reason.
