A Bark is Local, but the Cat Speaks Just One Meow

25 February, 2012

Onomatopoetic words, ``buzz``, ``beep`` and ``moo``, for instance, mimic the action or object they represent. They are, in theory, international, part of a lingua franca. Cows, after all, don`t moo differently in Spain than in Japan, do they? And all donkeys hee-haw, don`t they?

The Pakistani ducks say ``tay-tay-tay``. The Croatians go ``back-back-back``. The Hungarian quack is so close to a real duck`s that it is almost impossible to transcribe.

The Japanese mouse beeps. The South Korean pig beeps, too. The Greek dog says ``gobble-gobble``. Only the Arab dog goes ``bow-wow``. And a cat`s meow is the most international sound.
