Definition of crickle-crackle in English:

crickle-crackle

noun

  • A repeated crackling sound.

Origin

Mid 17th century; earliest use found in Nathaniel Whiting (d. 1682), satirist and nonconformist minister. Apparently a reduplication (with vowel variation) of crackle, perhaps with imitative motivation, the higher vowel being intended to convey a sharper cracking sound; compare crick-crack, and also crickling, crickle, crick.
