To gain more insight into a vowel sound's harmonic overtones, I sorted a list of onomatopoeic vocabulary words by their vowel color.  Click here to see it.

This list was compiled by Kathy Steineman who has it sorted alphabetically at 300+ Onomatopoeic Sound Words: A Cheat Sheet for Writers.

So what do you think?  Can you hear the related harmonics when you read the words on the list?  Does a particular vowel carry with it a specific real-world musical association or emotion for you?
