I have no idea whether anyone is interested in this other than me, but I found it fascinating that different cultures “hear” animal sounds in completely different ways.
And it’s my blog, so I’ll post about it anyway.
This is how goats sound around the world:
Albanian: me-e me-e
Arabic (Algeria): maa maa
Arabic (Morocco): maaaazz
German: mähh, mähh
Hebrew: meeee meeee
Polish: meee, meee
Spanish (Spain): bee bee
Thai: bae bae (with high tone)
Turkish: be-e-e-eh be-e-e-eh
I found the information at this terrific site.
Did you know that Hebrew speakers hear dogs go “Hav Hav?”
