Literature concerning sound symbolism points out correlation (on sub-morphemic level) between opposition of front and back vowels and opposition of meaning of words that contain them. For example, front vowel phonemes are connected with small size of things or phenomena; back vowel phonemes - with huge size. The paper shows the correlation in Polish onomatopoeic interjections. The author compares a few hundred onomatopoeias.
