The languages handled the following reveal strikingly related styles of derivational techniques related to ideophones. An both common universal function is the advent of ideophones through a verbum dicendi or complementizer. one other commentary issues the sound-symbolic habit of ideophones. hence the observe formation of ideophones differs from different phrases of their tendency for iconicity and sound-symbolism. ultimately it's made transparent that ideophones are a part of spoken language — the language sign in, the place gestures are used — instead of written language.
