Help wanted: what says an animal in your language?
Posted January 7th, 2013 - 3:10 pm by from Utrecht, Netherlands (Permalink)

I started a topic in a different group about animalsounds (like why says a pig in Dutch "knor knor" but in English "oink oink". I have been looking for different languages from all over the world to compare them. One thing I am missing a lot is Central Asian languages. So I wondered if people can help me here (please in Latin writing). You can reply in this topic or below here:


So the question is, can you help me with the sounds from your country/language? So a real animal sound / language exchange!

I'll give it a start with Dutch, to set an example. Hopefully more people will follow and can copy/paste this list of animals and write down what they say.

Cat: miauw
Dog: woef
Chicken: tok tok
Rooster: kukeleku
Pig: knor knor
Cow: boe
Donkey: iaah
Bird: tjirp tjirp / twiet twiet
Horse: hinnik
Duck: kwaak
Snake: sssss
Rabbit: snif snif
Goat: bee
Fish: blub
Owl: oehoe
Bee: bzzz
Mice: piep piep
Lion/tiger: grauw

Hope we can get a lot of languages!:) Please copy/paste the complete list of animals, so it will be as complete as possible with the sounds and languages!
