bzzzpeak – Multicultural Onomatopoeia

You know how in the U.S. (or in Great Britain) a dog purportedly goes woof woof or bow wow, but in Hungary it might say meh meh? Or how in India the cow might say mmmmmm instead of moo, as American cows do? In different cultures, we personify the animals differently – wouldn’t it be cool to see how?

That’s what bzzzpeak does – and not just for animals either, but for trains and cars and other things too. bzzzpeak is an interactive project that encourages individuals from around the world to share how these things sound to them.

Very cool graphic interface with clickable sound files teach kids that there are other ways of hearing the world than their own.
