Re: onomatopeia in Russian

Hello from Russia!
You can also use:
1. Хрю-Хрю (khru-khru) it sounds like a pig voice.
2. Гав-Гав (gav-gav) sounds like a dog bark.

By the way, onomatopoeia is not widely spread in Russian language.

P.S. The word "onomatopoeia" is very special and not used in spoken language.
