Help what says an animal in your language?
I have this idea (which sounds probably a bit crazy) of collecting (and publishing....) a list of animalsounds around the world. For example, why says a frog in Holland 'kwaak' and in English 'rabit' and in Japanese 'gero gero'? Or why says a pig 'knor knor' in Holland, but in Germany 'oink oink'? While it's just the neighbour country!
Basically, it's the same animal but as soon as you cross a border it's saying something different (at least, that's how humans hear it). Sounds strange, doesn't it?
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.
Chicken: tok tok
Pig: knor knor
Bird: tjirp tjirp / twiet twiet
Rabbit: snif snif
Mice: piep piep
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!
