Helter-skelter

  • 06.012 and helter-skelter down here.

A word of which OED says:

Etymology: A jingling expression vaguely imitating the hurried clatter of feet rapidly and irregularly moved, or of many running feet.

Therefore this word will be added to the onomatopoeia tag!

“helter-skelter, adv., adj., n., and v.” OED Online, Oxford University Press, June 2017, http://www.oed.com/view/Entry/85762. Accessed 14 September 2017.
