      Nor can I approve of the term employed by Torrend : onomatopoetic substantives. Substantives they are certainly not, as they pertain to none of the eight classes and have nothing of the nature of nouns. On the other hand, only a part of them are real onomatopoeiae, i. e. words resembling the sound made by the thing of which they are the names.
    • 1943, Henry George Farmer, Saʾadyah Gaon on the Influence of Music (London: A. Probsthain) p.76:
