basque language – onomatopoeias

When our village school in Ituren was officially named the ‘Pulunpa School’ (literally the ‘ding dong’ / ‘ring ring’) school (after our ‘bell-ringing’ carnival personalities the ‘Joaldunak’) I realised that onomatopoeias in the Basque language had a very important role. Here is a fascinating list of the plisti-plasta – kriski-kraska – dinbe-danba Basque onomatopoeias with the help of the 88-year-old Amatxi (grandmother) on the neighbouring farm.
