30 Ways to Say Meow

Does this cat say “meow,”
“miau,” or perhaps “nyā”?


Because you never know when you might find yourself talking to a cat from Albania, Denmark, or Japan, I have compiled this handy Meow Translation Chart. Most of the translations link to a Google page where you can hear what the word sounds like in that language (to hear it, just click the little speaker on the right side of the Google page). I wanted to have the sounds link directly from this chart, but She of Little Talent was helping me, so once again my dreams went unfulfilled due to old SoLT’s technological limitations. The words are worth listening to anyway, because though the letters might say “m-e-o-w,” the spoken word can sound very different from what we American cats are used to.
