This anthology collected studies on sensory languages and commonly termed onomatopoeia from a wide range of perspectives, including developmental, language, and cognitive psychology. Chapter 3, written by the editor of the book, presents comparative studies on the frequency of the occurrence of onomatopoeia used to express the speed of walking and intensity of rain.

There are quite a few articles examining motions in animation within the field of cognitive psychology. However, there are only a small number of books available. Here, I prioritized readability for non-specialists in motor perception and chose books that would provide a vehicle for people interested in motions in animation, including psychology books—as well as those authored by animation producers—and excluding research articles. Books on the “uncanny valley,” which has recently attracted attention of the selector, included one written in English.
