  1. Phonestheme

    The term phonestheme was coined in 1930 by British linguist J. R. Firth to label the systematic pairing of form and meaning in a language. A phonestheme is different from a morpheme because it does not meet the normal criterion of compositionality. Within Peirce's "theory of signs" the phonestheme is considered to be an "icon" rather than a "symbol" or an "index".
