Have you ever wondered what a cat's meow sounds like in Japanese? How about the grumble of an empty stomach, the rumble of an automobile's engine, or the crash of an ocean wave?

Japanese manga artists rely heavily upon onomatopoeia — sound-effect words — and this special entry in the best-selling Kana de Manga/Kanji de Manga language-learning series from Manga University is jam-packed with illustrated examples of those sounds in action.

Features more than 100 Japanese onomatopoeia and their English equivalents in categories such as "humans," "animals," "machines" and "nature."
