soundimals

i’ve heard the PINGAS in “snooping as usual i see” so many times that i have trouble imagining a human actually making the sound

im pretty sure the sound was made when two continental plates ground together, bellowing out from the bottom of a canyon as if the earth itself were crying out for dick. no man made that noise.

HOW TO SNEEZE IN TEN LANGUAGES

So apparently, deaf people sneeze silently.
And this article says the sneeze sounds we make are just cultural habits and we don’t even need them. 

Although it does also say “Very little deaf-sneeze research exists”.

Thanks a lot, government.

SNORING AROUND THE WORLD

This one is harder to practice than most international sounds, because you have to be unconscious to do it. But I think if you try hard enough you probably could.

The french one includes the sounds for inhaling (RON) and exhaling (PCHI).
I have a great amount of respect for any language that put that much thought into the sound snoring makes.

I see these animal sound posts going around a lot… And while they are really cute, not all are correct.

The spelling is often wrong. In German, the sound of frogs is “quak” and not “kwaak”, for example. So I’m almost sure there are also a few mistakes when it comes to the other languages.

My point: When you see some new vocabulary in memes and so on, it’s always best to check it first before you memorize it.
