Animals make different noises in different languages. Not that the animals speak other languages, but we, as people, perceive their noises differently.
So one afternoon in a hostel in Berlin I asked various people how animals speak in their language...
- French (N Amer)
- Spanish (S Amer)
So, the English by themselves on this one. Everyone else has basically the same word.
- miao (or meow)
I gave up quickly on this one. A cat sounds the same internationally.
