The article deals with the problem of linguistic iconism, which is popular nowadays not only with linguists but also with psychologists and philosophers. The article presents the description and the results of the experiment involving the Russian speaking volunteers. The aim of the research is to examine the potential ability of foreign speakers to recognize the meaning of the onomatopoeic words of the unfamiliar language. The results of the relevant preceding experiments with the Altay and Mongolian speakers are also discussed in the paper. The research involves the speakers and the onomatopoeic words belonging to different genealogical branches in order to prevent the speakers from recognizing the stimuli due to their similarity in their native language
