Hi friends! Today, our Dica is about animal sounds in Portuguese.
Learning animal sounds in Portuguese
Today we are going to learn about the onomatopoeia of animals, that is to say, the animal sounds in Portuguese. We use onomatopoeia when we want to imitate sounds, and for that we use phonemes or words.
Did you know that some animal sounds vary depending on the language you are talking? For example, in Portuguese we say that dogs bark reproducing a sound like au au. But, in English the representation of the bark would be woof woof. It’s a very funny and interesting exercise to compare these sounds in many languages.
Now, let’s learn the animal sounds and how we write and say them in Portuguese:
|Duck||Quá quá/Quack quack|
|Mice||Chip chip chip|
|Turkey||Glu glu glu|
