The semantic aspects of onomatopoeia : focusing on Japanese psychomimes

Hasada, Rie


This thesis aims to examine the semantic aspects of Japanese onomatopoeia, which is among the least studied of the language phenomena in Japanese linguistics. While there have been a certain number of works written on Japanese onomatopoeic words within the last twenty years, one may be struck by the rarity of linguistic works done on the semantic analysis of those words.
