“At a recent work shop on sound symbolism in Atlanta, Georgia, he reported that "wh" words associated with words that describe the production of noises such as "whisper", "whine" or "whirr", and those beginning with "fl" that tend to signal movement in the air, such as "fly" or "flail", also enjoyed this fast track in the brain's processing. Bergen concludes that these may all be forms of sound symbolism.”
