The great lexicographer Pierre Larousse praised Charles Nodier’s dictionary of onomatopoeias as a « masterpiece of modern linguistics », noting its interest and erudition. Nodier explains in his preface that onomatopoeias are the source for all languages. He argues that “onomatopoeias are to spoken language, what hieroglyphs are to writing”, and that “man sought to apply ideas to that which he saw, either through signs or sounds.” Nodier’s meticulous and subtle work points out not only the most obvious of French onomatopoeias, but also those that lost this original characteristic over time. He thus demonstrates that the names in French for each of the principal organs of speech begin with sounds produced by those same organs; a perfect example of the imitative patterns of onomatopoeias.
