the sound of a rooster Jan 22, 2008

hello
In most Spanish speaking countries the sounding of a rooster is described as:

kikiri!

whether you can use it in your poem or not I do not know, this is used in prose and also in children's stories.

good luck

English-speaking roosters say Cockle-doodle-dooo! and the Francophone roosters say Co-co-ree-co!

In Germany they say Kikerikie! and in Finnish kukkokiekuu! But these must NOT be pronounced the English way of course!

They crow like this over there: ü-ürü-üüüü - the ü at the beginning is short and sudden, whereas the one at the end may be extended as much as you wishicon_smile.gif

Actually, the rendering would be: QUIQUIRIQUÍ (with the accent on the last syllable).

According to the Diccionario de la Real Academia Española:

quiquiriquí.
1. onomat. U. para imitar el canto del gallo. U. t. c. s. m.
2. m. coloq. Persona que quiere sobresalir y gallear.

(1. Onomatopeia: to imitate the crowing of a rooster)

You can also check the Wikipedia article for "Onomatopeia", which uses precisely the example of a rooster, see:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onomatopeia
In Spanish, "quiquiriqui" for a rooster crow

The article also lists other languages. A good resource, I think...

Good luck!

roosters say: Cocorocó


It´s not that roosters make a different sound in every part of the world, but people
interpret that sound differently.
