recently, it’s been brought to my attention that animals speak in different tongues. and i had no idea that one country’s animal onomatopoeia isn’t the same as another. for example, an american pig goes “oink, oink” while a japanese pig goes, “boo boo”.
this discovery was made when a thai friend was talking to me about a rooster and it’s incessant “ake-e-ake-ake”-ing. rooster in thai is gài dtua pôo. and i didn’t know that. so when she was telling me the gài dtua pôo woke her up going “ake-e-ake-ake” i assumed she was talking about a charlie horse in her leg aching and waking her up. and what a good laugh she we had once we figured out how silly i am. i immediately came home to google this and see what was up. sure enough, roosters around the globe speak many languages.
and because i would hate to think i could have stopped you from the same embarrassing situation, i’m sharing my new found knowledge. one day, you’ll thank me.
plus, i found this way cool website where you can hear different animal sounds. but i’m not 100% sure of the accuracy. i don’t agree with all the sounds they say the animals that are american make.
