Japanese Sound Effects and what they mean.
Spotted on Gen Kanai's blog: this rather comprehensive list of sound-effect words from manga
- the Japanese equivalent of BAM! WAP!, OOF! (and possibly even D'OH!), but covering a wider range of social and emotional terrain. Lest you surmise that these are more or less arbitrary, I "tested" ten or so on my fiancee and found that she knew every single one. Aaaa!
