Dear all,

working on a paper on ideophones and their place in grammar and lexicon 
I happened to wonder how things are concerning cough.

Romance languages and other which I am familiar with do not seem to have 
a standard ideophone for it and even less a stable an accepted written 
version of it.

Do you know languages that have an ideophone for cough and even more a 
way of indicating it in writing?
