(1) Verbal originality scores were obtained from Onomatopoeia and Images, Form 1B, given to 106 Ss aged 10 to 12 yr. and 94 Ss aged 16 to 19 yr.
(2) 72 college adults were administered Onomatopoeia and Images and the Gordon Test of Visual Imagery Control.
(3) 90 college students (31 men and 59 women) were categorized as moderately autonomous, less autonomous (less highly controlled) and non-autonomous (high controlled) imagers according to the Gordon Test of Visual Imagery Control Moderately autonomous imagers produced significantly more original verbal images than less autonomous and non-autonomous imagers with less autonomous imagers scoring higher than non-autonomous imagers as measured by Onomatopoeia and Images.
(4) The character is a hit among children and adults in Japan for his irreverent behaviour and his use of inappropriate language, much of which exploits the common use of onomatopoeia in Japanese.
(5) These results suggest that the right hemisphere is dominant in the auditive recognition of familiar sounds, and supply information as to the linguistic value of onomatopoeias.

(12) A double dissociation is noted; in left-sided affections there is a more severe deficiency to onomatopoeia than to cries, whereas in right-sided lesions the quality of the performances is reversed.
(13) The recognition of animal cries and their onomatopoeias was compared during the course of right or left unilateral cortical lesions.
