Book chapter

Les emplois métaphoriques des verba sonandi associés aux animaux en finnois

P. 139-150.
Ivan Stenin, Maria Shapiro.

The paper concerns verbs of animal sounds in Finnish as well as their metaphorical uses with reference to human beings, artifacts, and nature. The paper attempts to define the main sources of metaphors for spontaneous bodily reactions, feelings and physiological perceptions, approving and disapproving reactions, inarticulate speech, and various characteristics of a voice such as timbre and loudness. The basic regularities determining the formation of metaphors related to artifacts are also described.
