Abstract:

Japanese has a large number of lexical items which express sounds of 
animate and inanimate referents (onomatopoeiae), and those which express 
the manner of actions/events, properties of various referents, and human 
emotions (mimetics). The author employs the general term ideophones for 
these two types of word, i.e. onomatopoeiae and mimetics, as they share the 
same or similar linguistic characteristics. The book is divided into two parts: 
a short introduction to and the lexicon of Japanese ideophones. 

The introduction gives the reader a brief overview of the linguistic features of 
Japanese ideophones in phonology (basic phonological items for the 
formation of ideophones and their phonosemantic features), morphology (word 
formation of ideophones), syntax (grammatical functions and colligation) and 
semantics (polysemy, referent marking, collocation, emotivity, visuality, and 
semantic fields of Japanese ideophones). The second part of the book, i.e. 
the lexicon, is a collection of Japanese ideophones used in Japanese 
newspapers, television news broadcasting and other spoken and written 
media; it is also a collection of German expressions which can be translated 
using Japanese ideophones. The latter was collected primarily from German 
children's literature, a German tabloid (Bild) and a German weekly magazine 
(Der Spiegel). 

The book contains altogether 1095 entries, and they consist of basic 
ideophonic lexical items and their variants. The main objective of the book is 
to obtain sufficient material for a ontrastive analysis of Japanese ideophones 
and their German counterparts. However, the lexicon can be of practical 
assistance to the German student of Japanese, or to the Japanese learner of 
German as a second language, as one encounters many ideophonic 
expressions in both spoken and written Japanese. The book might further be 
of interest to linguists who are interested in ideophones in general.
