Pramod Kumar Agrawal:
There is a paper on phonosemantics. http://www.macrothink.org/journal/index.php/ijl/article/view/5131/
Please look at it. I would like to discuss this paper in the forum.

Daniel:
What did the reviewers think of this paper? Personally I find it challenging to read and (at best) very controversial, against many basic working hypotheses in Linguistics. Did you benefit from any of their comments?

zaba:
(also this journal is pay-to-publish)

Pramod Kumar Agrawal:
Mr. djr33
The comments of the reviewers were highly positive. They did not point out any weakness in the paper.
You said that "Personally I find it challenging to read and (at best) very controversial, against many basic working hypotheses in Linguistics".
I think, it is because I am trying to define the image in terms of observation and perception, not in terms of its construction.
Mr. Zaba,
Thanks for your important remark.

You're welcome! Pay to publish is sometimes (but not always) corrupt. (Macrothink is unquestionably a vanity press -- let's not pretend it's anything else. It certainly isn't an "institute".)

No surprise there. It's a vanity press.
