The word "cacophony" exists in English, and it is defined as an unpleasant or discordant combination of sounds. However, I couldn't find any particular example of cacophony in English. I hope someone can help!
The opposite is "euphony," which is a pleasant or beautiful combination of sounds. According to J. R. R. Tolkien, the most euphonic expression in the English language is "cellar door."
"Phonaesthetics" is the study of how pleasant a sound combination is.
