Words about dogs

Friday, December 11, 2015 by

Listening to a radio talk back host made me realize for the first time how like the word 'wolf' is to the word 'woof' as the presenter actually heard 'wolf' rather than what the caller was saying which was 'woof'.

This would be a really interesting subject, one I won't get to at this stage, but perhaps this article will inspire someone else (do please tell me if you do write an article or tome on this subject!). It would be fascinating to read more about dog words and similarities in pronunciation within English and between other languages.
