This article is devoted to the phono-semantic study of the emotive meanings of consonant sounds of the Mongolian language by the psycholinguistic experiment with native speakers. Studies of sound symbolism, including psycholinguistic measurements, have led to the conclusion that there is an initial connection between the sound shells of words and their meanings in different languages. Thus, the idea that existed in linguistics for a long time about the content of sound forms, which tend to one way or another to correspond to the meaning of words, was confirmed. We have chosen the most frequent consonants in the modern Mongolian literary language. As a result of the experiment, the emotive meanings of the selected consonants are marked and it is stated that the sounds vividly express the emotive meanings associated with the internal state, such as discomfort, unpleasant sensations, and feelings, or calmness, silence, as well as pride, joy. Consonants with positive or negative emotional meanings are defined during the experiment. We consider that this may be due to the acoustic-articulatory features of this sound. But it is also revealed that some sounds have neutral and different ratings. As for the different assessments on one or another basis, this can be explained by two reasons: on the one hand, the system-structural nature of the language and, above all, its phonological system, and on the other, secondary (secondary) motivation based on the influence of lexicosemantic units in these languages.
