Onomatopoeias, words that sound like that which they represent, vary from people to people. Take for example the cry of the rooster, which in the English speaking world we call cock-a-doodle-doo. The Chinese say gūgūgū, the Italians chicchirichí, Swedes kuckeliku, and the Germans kikeriki, but Israelis say kukuriku.
