In case you haven’t heard, animals make different sounds in other languages. For example, in France a dog says “Ouah!” In Mexico they say, “Guav!” How is it then, that we hear “Bark!”?

I found out tonight that the way we hear things differently is not limited to animal noises. We were at a stop light alongside a Vietnamese restaurant tonight. On the sign was a picture of a clock face serving up a cup of tea. The name of the restaurant? “Tic Tac.” Apparently clocks say things differently in Vietnam.

Did you know that a Japanese bee says “Boon Boon“?
