Synaesthesia, Onomatopoeia, and Food Writing

  • Ryoko SasamotoEmail author
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Sound book series (PASTS)


From this chapter onwards, the focus will be on the role of onomatopoeia in different types of discourse. The aim of this chapter is to analyse the role of onomatopoeia in food discourse and to explain how the use of onomatopoeia in food writing helps the reader to experience enforced synaesthesia, in that readers will share the sensory experience via different sensory channels. It will be shown that the characteristics of onomatopoeia involving both showing and saying aspects allow the reader to access both direct and indirect (coded) evidence of the food experience which the author intends to share. As onomatopoeia allows for the enforced synaesthesia of the full multisensory experience of food, it therefore provides authors with a perfect tool to share food experience.
