Dear Raffaele,

In Hrusso Aka (ISO code: hru; named 'Hruso' in Ethnologue), a language of North East India, the ideophone for cough is [kjoxuʔ kjoxuʔ].

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?
