Did you know that roosters in other parts of the
world speak a different language than roosters in America?
Note: Derby could care less
To me, the English speaker who says “cock-a-doodle-doo,”
a rooster crow is a silly five-syllable word with three hard sounds.
To most European, roosters speak mostly in three
syllable bursts, with a roly-poly French accent if they’re in
France and the thin, sharp sounds of a Spanish accent if they
live in Spain. The way it’s pronounced gives the rooster a different personality.
I was interested in how “cock-a-doodle-doo” is said in other languages.
(Note: This list was blatantly borrowed fromYawiktionary.com!)
And my personal favorite, Pig Latin: “ockcay-away-oodleday-ooday”!
So ... here you have it. The dialects of the Rooster and
two cock-a-doodle-doo quilts.
