it’s odd how animal noises are different in different languages. In uk english dogs go *woof* I’m guessing *voff* is the noise they make in swedish?

thats normal.. cause the A doesn’t necessairy sound the same in all languages.. same for the W and V … ;)

but i know the feelinG…

makes sense to me.
In spanish, the sound a dog makes is guau, i believe.

phonetic sounds from different cultures for different animals. there used to be a site with audio recordings of the people saying them as part of a study but i can’t find that at the moment.

Brazilian dogs (who speak portuguese) go: Au!

Oh… I know the feeling. It’s kind of a moodkiller when you really want to stay indoors and sexorcise as well.

Well, it only makes sense that, even aside from varying phonetics, the onomatopoeia are going to be somewhat different. After all, dogs have a large “vocabulary.” Is the “sound a dog makes” in English “Woof?” Or is it “bow-wow?” “Buhroo?” “AooOooOOOooooOO!” “Yip?” “Ein!” when the mailman kicks the neighbor’s awful little guard-chihuaha away?

I believe that stomping on a chihuahua produces something like “Ip! krsch..”

In german it’s “wuff”

February 4th, 2009 at 6:08 pm

Well, in Hungary, dogs “say” “Vaú” :D
