I am currently trying to make a list of semantic categories of ideophones, in order to do a cross-linguistic comparison (for example, do ideophones whose meanings are related to brightness show similarity across different languages?)
Here’s my list so far, created out of my intuition and previous literature.
I wonder if you have any meanings that you would like to add to or remove from the list.
The goal is to make a list of ideophone meanings so that most languages that have a sizeable ideophone inventory would have at least several ideophones that belong to each category.
I would appreciate any comments or advices.
