If you feel like comparing the sounds of the world’s animals, check The Global Language Monitor. Thus, you will find out, a bee in Japan sounds “bunbun, and in Ukrainian “dzzz”. A cat in Vietnam makes “meo meo” and in Catalan “meu meu”. The Global Language Monitor documents, analyzes and tracks trends in language the world over, such as Youthspeak, Business speak, Internet lingo, endangered languages, new Global English words, such as fantabulous or ginormous. There are links to fine language sites, such as the Klingon Language Institute. At the moment, they attempt to pinpoint the precise number of words in the English language. What’s your guess?
