The ideophones and expressives discussion list

Full Description: A discussion about ideophones/expressives and their use and place in natural languages. Often part of a separate word class within languages, these forms have been largely neglected in linguistic theory, despite their very common everyday occurrence in many languages.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the syntactic and pragmatic, inventory size, phonological, semantic, typological, and historical, and their place in a larger theory of language structure and use.
