Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 15-Dec-2014 

Second call for papers: special issue on ideophones

As sensory descriptors, ideophones are fascinating to experts in both
linguistics and the arts: they straddle the boundary between a linguistic
utterance and an expressive symbol. However, few attempts have been made to
capture the behavior of ideophones from an interdisciplinary perspective. This
issue could fill that gap.

Research to date has focused mainly on ideophones specific to a particular
language (be it Japanese, Yorùbá or Finnish) or a particular geographical
region (primarily Africa) but few studies have addressed patterns emerging
cross-linguistically and across cultures, or have taken an interdisciplinary
perspective. 

Meaning

What is the possible range of meanings that ideophonic expressions encode
within/across languages? How do ideophones relate to speaker-addressee
knowledge and speaker perspective or veracity?

Structure

What are the means whereby ideophones are integrated into grammatical systems?
Specifically, what are the conditions and the patterns for constructing
ideophones as lexical categories such as nouns, verbs or adjectives versus
grammatical functors, such as aspect markers?

Expression 

What part do ideophones play in distinct registers and/or performance styles?
What is the range of functions? How does the use of ideophones affect
narration of experiences and sharing of knowledge? What are the
differences/similarities in the use of ideophones across distinct genres of
verbal art?

Expressions of interest should be sent to solveiga.armoskaite at rochester.edu or
Paivi.Koskinen at kpu.ca by November 15, 2014, and the final paper by December
15, 2014.
