Animal Sounds in Different Languages
I was rereading Saussure for a class today, when I was struck by his comment that in French, dogs go “ouaoua,” while in English they bark out “bow-wow”!
I looked online for resources on animal sounds in different languages, and here are some interesting links I found:
Quack-project.com, which has actual sound files.
The University of Adelaide’s Animal Sounds page, text only, the world’s largest such database.
and, Animal Sounds in Foreign Languages, text only.
