Mimologiques: voyage en Cratylie (1976, translated as Mimologics, 1995) is a book on mimologics by Gérard Genette. The Cratylie in the title refers to Plato's dialogue Cratylus.

It is a full length history of phonosemantics. In 450 pages, Genette details the evolution of the linguistic iconism among linguists and poets, in syntax, morphology and phonology.
