Animal Sounds in Different Languages


(Video Link)

How do dogs bark in English? "Woof woof." In Portuguese? "Au au." How about Turkish? "Hav hav."

This video by properniceinnit shows how languages around the world express the vocalizations of dogs, cats, cows, chickens and pigs.

Definitely French-Canadian, especially clear with the pig one. I have a fair bit of family in or from Canada, and they don't agree on what is Canadian slang or not. There seems to be a rather big difference between eastern and western Canada on some words, even if not counting French-Canadians. I've seen arguments break out over words, where some insist one is American and another is Canadian, and then another insists the exact opposite. Seems to go both ways, as several times when in Canada I've had people ask me why Americans don't say pop instead of soda, or even ask if we use "coke" to mean pop in general.

Fifty years a Canadian, and I have never heard those sounds the supposed "Canadian" is making.

Maybe there's a Canada on Mars or something?
