Abstract

Animal names, animal sounds, sound words and symbols related to animals are the main part of sociolinguistics study. Because the animals were present every where in the world, the people used them not only for traveling and transportation but they were used as a part of food, they helped the man ploughing the fields. There were many similarities among them like biological similarities such as body structure and food chains. The relation of man with animals was of the same kind every where. Therefore animal sound, behavior, activities and animal names are important items of linguistic discussion.
