    hey — what do the Fr. Canadyuns or the Outrageux Frawnsche say a goat says???
    Y’know, how the “Mericun version of a rooster’s call is “cock-a-doodle-doo” but the Japonais say s’thing very different?

    I’ve forgotten, Gigi, whether you’re from the Frozen Northside or from la belle France itself?

    avec le paix,
    Leslie T/ Jax/ Fla

  20. I’m from the luckely not yet frozen North. And a rooster’s call is cocorico but a goat (une chèvre) call is a bêlement (baa baa)

  21. merci bien!! I’m so appreciative of your furthering the Frawnsche that I got in H.S.
    (grammar school) and college. Sometimes the items/ vocab I’m asking about ,
    tends to not be listed, in Basic French/ English Dictionaries …. ;)
