Portuguese animal onomatopoeia
Today, our Video Dica is about the portuguese animal onomatopoeia.
Hello guys, are you ok? As you all know, I am Moisés, Coordinator at Rio & Learn in Rio de Janeiro, and, today, we’ll be doing another of our Video Dicas in which we are going to talk about onomatopoeias. Onomatopoeias are imitating sounds made through phonemes or words. There are several categories for onomatopoeias. So, we are going to expand our curiosity a bit here today, and, we will be talking about the onomatopoeias of animals. I am going to produce the sounds of the animals. Let’s see how this works; bearing in mind that I am Brazilian and I never give up, it is going to work. Let’s start. Ok, this one is very easy: Au, au! Au, au! It’s easy to identify, and if you thought about a dog, you’re correct. Here, the dog is our great friend, a man’s best friend, and he makes the sound “Au, au!” So, now for the next sound, Let’s see what awaits us. Miau! Miau! Miau! “Miau!”, it’s the sound produced by the cat. So, the cat makes the sound “miau!” Ok! Let’s move on to the next. Let’s see what’s the next challenge for onomatopoeias in Portuguese. Cocorocó! Cocorocó! One more time: Cocorocó! Was anyone able to identify the sound ‘Cocorocó!’? ok, if you thought about the rooster, you’re right; the animal that makes the sound ‘Cocorocó!’, and wakes us up everyday at 4 am or 5 am, at least here in Brazil. Ok, let’s move on to our next animal. Ió! Ió! Ió! I can’t do it very well. Ió! Ok! Is it possible to identify this one? Alright! If you thought about the donkey, you are right. That’s the animal that makes the sound “Ió”. It does it a little faster than me though. Ió! I can’t do it so fast. Ok, let’s go to the next. Our next sound is: “Cri, cri!”, “Cri, cri!”, “Cri, cri!”, “Cri, cri!”, the sound of the cricket. That’s the sound the cricket makes “Cri, cri!”, Every night, in the rural areas; those who live in the countryside regions hear this sound a lot “Cri, cri!”. So, there it is, the cricket. Let’s take a look at our next challenge. Ok! let’s go: “Mééé!” Look! It works! “Mééé!!”. Wow! One more time: “Mééé!!”. Ok! If you thought about the sheep, that’s right, the animal that makes the sound “Mééé!!” Ok! Now for our next challenge: “Glu, glu, glu!”. Again: “Glu, glu, glu!”. One more time: “Glu, glu, glu!”. Is it possible for you to identify it? Are you able to? Well, for those who are unable to identify this sound Moisés is making, it’s the sound of the turkey. This animal here is called a turkey and it makes this sound “Glu, glu, glu!”. A sound that is almost a welcoming. So, I am going to finish here, after doing all these animal sounds. We finish our Video Dica here for today with a big thank you! And letting you know as usual that you can contact us by logging on to our website or through any of the following social networks. We are always ready to talk to you. So, a big hug to you all while you watch me here ‘Pagando mico!’ (doing embarassing things). I was here embarrassing myself. Does anyone know the meaning of this expression ‘pagando mico’, or the expression ‘pagar um mico’? Is it to give 2 reals to an ape or a monkey?
I will leave you thinking. In our next Video Dica, I will let you know the answer to the meaning of the expression ‘Pagando um mico’. A big hug to you all! See you in our next Video Dica.
Now you know the portuguese animal onomatopoeia
Our next Dica will be about the expression ‘Pagar um mico‘.
Até lá, pessoal!
