What do ducks say in Russia? In America it's quack and in Germany it's kwak.





And if you ask a bird watcher, it's "Wait, what type of duck?"

In French: coin coin :)

No idea how to explain the pronunciation though ...


IPA: /kwɛ̃.kwɛ̃/

Here's a French speaker pronouncing it: https://youtu.be/Dtta-mW6Pro?t=15


Now I understand Uncle Scrooge!

Квак :) Just like the Germans

But it's "krya" (кря-кря), "kva" is what frogs say.
