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.
