    Vocabulary: animals' noise

                                                                            ANIMAL  NOISES

     It's curious to notice that people, in different parts of the world, simply do not hear the same noise when a dog 'woofs 'or a duck' quacks'.

    In France dogs go 'ouah, ouah' and ducks go 'coin, coin'.

     What do people say to mimic the rooster cry ? 

      English:  cock-a-doodle doo             French:  cocorico             Spanish:  kikiriki

      Portuguese:  corococó                German:  kikeriki             Italian:  chicchirichi

      Danishkykyliky                                 Dutch:  kukeleku             Russian:  kukareku 

     Here are three dogs, they don't make the same noise


     little dog:  yap, yap                   middle sized dogwoof, woof              big dog: bow wow  


     The French frog says:   coa coa        the English one:   croak                            

                    and in the USA it says:   ribbit            


     a horse says  neigh         a cow says moo          a sheep says baa       a goat says  naa


     a crane says clang            a camel says grumph       an elephant says baraag


               pretty boy                                                 gobble gobble
