Gobble gobble

I’ll never understand how this weblogging and communication thing works. Sometimes I post something and expect lots of reaction from my dear readers, but nothing happens.

On other days, I post something silly just to have an excuse to flip the page, and what happens? Everyone comments.

So now I finally know what blivet really means.

Animal sounds

Craig points to Sounds of the World’s Animals.

Okay, here’s a little test for the Germans: Which animals does these sounds in German:

  • tswit, tswit
  • kwrah, kwrah
  • guru, guru
  • huh
  • I don’t think I would have recognized these…

    (Die Lösungen gibt’s hier.)

    The most interesting animal is the rooster, I think. He says ‘Kikeriki’ in German and sounds very similar in most of the other languages, but English and American roosters seem to be more musical; they go ‘cock-a-doodle-doo’!

    Hehe, und Truthähne machen auf Englisch ‘gobble gobble’.

    Gobble gobble gobble gobble gobble…

    Okay, back to work now.
