SNEEZING IN A DIFFERENT WAY, OR A BIT OF ONOMATOPOEIA
As a result of being caught in the rain yesterday, I’ve caught a cold and now I’m sneezing constantly. It’s interesting to mention that people from different countries not only speak different languages, not only have different views on the same things due to the influence of their cultures, but they also sneeze in a different way:
The Russian – ‘Apchhi!’
The English – ‘Ahchoo!’
But actually it’s not the only difference, for example, knocking at the door: in Russia it’s ‘tuk-tuk’ and in England it’s already ‘knock-knock’. Have you ever had any idea that even animals in different countries ‘speak’ different languages? A Russian cat would say ‘miau’, while an English cat - ‘mew’ or ‘meow’; a Russian dog – ‘gav-gav’ while an English dog – ‘bow-wow’.
Actually there are many examples. And how do you sneeze?
I agree with you, actually there are several examples, but in Brazil sounds more or less this way.
The Brazilian - Athimm.
My friend is the most creative person :) I'm proud of you ;D. You know :)
