Subject: Linguistic iconicity bibliography

I am trying to develop as exhaustive a bibliography as I can on
linguistic iconicity and related topics - sound symbolism, synaesthesia,
African ideophones, iconicity in poetics, onomatopoetic dictionaries and
so forth. I'd be grateful for full bibliographical references to any
relevant works which do not appear at the following site:

Subject: Spoken Japanese corpus

Dear linguists, 

I am looking for a marked-up spoken Japanese corpus
which is available to the public in some way. 
I would be grateful if you could let me know any information on it.
