I had such a funny talk about this last summer Turns out all animals speak "dialects" since the discription of their noises seems different in every country.

 

I found it very funny that Dutch donkeys say "iii aaa"  whereas Turkish donkeys say "aaa iii"

Ofcourse, Dutch fish also say "blup" and the cows say "boo" which is apperently very funny to Turkish people {#emotions_dlg.laugh_at} {#emotions_dlg.shy}

No idea. I don´t know how it is written in Turkish. I don´t recall seeing it written somewhere.
