A Review ofNichiei Taishoo Giseigo (Onomatope) Jitenby Yuichi Mito, Hisao Kakehi, et al.Ikuhiro TamoriKobe University of CommerceIt appears that onomatopoeias are generally used morefrequently by children than by adults in English.This maybe one of the reasons why few linguists have shown keeninterest in onomatopoeic words.In Japanese, however,onomatopoeic words are indispensable to furnish minute andvivid descriptions of various actions or physical and psychicstates.Therefore, they are not only used by children butare quite commonly used by adults and are also found inliterary works, thus constituting an essential part of thelanguage.Today, as more and more people abroad includingscholars and students are beginning to show a stronginterest in the Japanese language and Japanese literature,the present dictionary—'A Contrastive Dictionary of Japanese and English Onomatopoeic Expressions'—is indispensablefor those who want to fully grasp and understand thelanguage, and to appreciate the delicacy of Japaneseliterature.To the best of my knowledge, this is the firstJapanese-English dictionary ever published which specifically deals with onomatopoeias.The dictionary contains a .fairly extensive number (about 1,100) of Japanese onomatopoeic words with rich examples, giving the user a clearpicture as to how each word is to be used.It must havebeen an extremely hard and time consuming job to haveedited a dictionary of this sort http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Japanese Linguistics de Gruyter
