Your dog “Bahk” with a Boston accent?
Officially, there are 195 countries in the world. If dogs can actually bark with different accents and localisms, we’d be forced to talk with a bow or something like that.
I caught the end of a conversation on the radio, talking about dogs growling with regional accents. I’m sure non-animals will laugh at this idea, but Disney was always right about Lady in the animated film. The Lady and the Tramp. Researchers have found that aristocratic dogs have a more “chic” accent when barking.
Now I know firsthand, that dogs sometimes see like their owners, but now scientists believe that many dogs ring like their owners. Studies show that dogs develop a bark or “voice” similar to their owner’s regional accent. I was surprised to find that dogs actually create a large vocabulary of howls, moans, sighs, growls, barks and growls.
In Mandarin Chinese, the most widely spoken language around the world, a dog’s bark does not sound like “woof-woof” or “bow-wow”, but more like wang-wang Where won-wong. It is wuff-wuff in Germany and Denmark it is vuf-vuf. In Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Algeria, dogs say hab, and it’s all Greek to me.
According to the Canine Behavior Center in Cumbria, England, it’s true that dogs do have regional accents like their owners, as the owner’s speech and language influences how a dog vocalizes. You can also say for sure that dogs are copy cats.
So if that’s the case, then the dogs here copy and speak a Bostonian “bahk” with our infamous accent. I would appreciate it if you let me know if you notice an accent the next time your Fido barks.
Until next time, you will have to forgive me. I just came across a BBC article that says herds of cows “moo” with distinct accents. I will get back to you soon.
