The sharp twang of Elven ash bows sounded above the rush of wind and raid, and more Gnome Hunters began to die.
Пронзительный звон тетивы знаменитых эльфийских луков перекрыл даже вой ветра и шелест дождя, и тут же раздались предсмертные хрипы гномов.

Just as they were passing the place, there came a sudden something that snarled and flashed, rising out from the breaking twigs like a thunderbolt. Lucy was knocked down and winded, hearing the twang of a bowstring as she fell.
Как только они миновали его, послышалось рычание, и кто-то с быстротой молнии выскочил из сломанных кустов, сбив Люси с ног.

He was so tightly strung, Brat thought, that if you plucked him with a finger he would twang.
Чувствовалось, что он натянут, как струна. Брет подумал, что, если его тронуть пальцем, наверняка раздастся звон.

“Latest triumph of art, my children; A-I, copper- bottomed, superfinísimo, nothing better on the market in this line of goods”—he managed to give the words the twang of an eager and ignorant salesman.
