Previous research has demonstrated that people associate certain vowel and consonant sounds with perceptions of physical size. For example, front vowels (like a long a, e, i) and fricatives (like the English f, z, and s) have been shown to convey smallness, while back vowels (sounds like the /u/ in goose or the sound in foot) indicate largeness.

That's a very interesting site. I've come across almost everything there, but to have it all gathered in one place is instructive. Some of it is total BS, of course, but much of it is psychological 'truth' (well, as much as that concept means anything at all).
