A study of the Runa people of Ecuador and their use of ideophones as a means of 'alignment' with their environment. As Runa increasingly engage with the modern world, ideophone use becomes restricted. The author suggests that Judeo-Christian relationships to the environment constrains the development of such sonic alignments. Animist beliefs support the use of such alignments.

NB Ideophone is onomatopoeiac in sense and not to be confused with Hornbostal and Sach's categorization of musical instruments.
