Ilk. ding n. “sound, *twang” (Category: Sound)

A noun that, together with its variant dang, was glossed “sound” (Ety/DING). Given that its root form ᴹ√DING was said to be onomatopoeic, it was probably a word for a particular kind of sound, perhaps like English “twang”, which is a gloss of several derivatives of the similar root ᴹ√TING/TANG.
