The correlation of the concepts of the phonosphere, the sound picture of the world, the phonosemantic picture of the world is defined. The sounds of water as an integral part of the sound phonosemantic picture of the world are chosen. A comparative phonosemantic and quantitative analysis of German and Russian verbs nominating the sounds of water is presented. The types of water sounding on the basis of universal phonosemantic typology by S. V. Voronin are revealed. Some quantitative differences of onomotopes of water sounding from acoustic onomatopoeia studied by the author earlier on the materials of the German and Russian languages are noted as a whole. Analysis of this fragment of the phonosemantic picture of the world confirms the conclusion that universal features in onomatopoeia prevail over specific ones.
