For all those who wondered what animals say in different languages - cute collection of recordings of children of different nationalities imitating different animal sounds:

This is really amusing. I passed it to my friends who have young children.

Every time my partner and I hear a cock crowing, we turn into five year-olds!
But sometimes even he has to admit that that cock really is saying cockadoodle-doo, not chicchirichì.

Marie-Hélène's post reminds me of a couple of months ago when I was visiting my nephew and niece. I use my mobile phone as my alarm clock and have it set so it wakes me to a "cock-a-doodle-doo!" sound (funny for the first few mornings but just a pain now!). I had woken up before my alarm that morning and was sitting with my nephew (6) when it went off. Bless him--not knowing it was the alarm, he legged it to the window and pulled back the curtains: "Auntie Amy, a cockerel! There's a cockerel!". It was so painful to have to let him down and tell him that, in fact, he was hearing the delicate strains of Nokia's latest offering...
