finn-head.jpg Would you like to be able to bark like a dog in Italian, Chinese, or Russian? The popular and aptly-named animal-appreciation blog Cute Overload (up for a Bloggie for 2007) led me to a chart of animal sounds and names put together by Dr. Derek Abbott of The University of Adelaide’s School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The chart’s organization makes it easy to use, but I would bet my bow-wows on the more comprehensive animal sounds directory compiled by Georgetown University linguistics professor Cathy Ball.
