Animal sounds in Turkish

This is something difficult to add in the course, but why not teach this to you here?

I created this myself, all images are taken from Wikipedia. Did I forget something? Please feel free to add.

Aslan, yılan, karga, kurt, domuz? kükremek, ıslıklamak, gaklamak, ulumak, homurdanmak??

I want to add that some animal sounds use repetition, and you can use them as verbs such as;

kurbağa- vırak vırak (vıraklamak) Köpek- hav hav (havlamak) ördek- vak vak (vaklamak) kuş- cik cik (ciklemek)

Also "eşek" says "aa iii" and "koyun/kuzu" says "meee". I just thought that just writing ai and me could be confusing.

You can listen to this children's song. :)

it is really great!

to be honest, pigeons' sound is different then cik. An image of another bird may be used.

Actually for the birds, we should have another topic. :D inspired by Kuşçu Şevket
