 Animal Sounds: A Visual Guide to the Sounds of Animals

When speaking or listening in English, you will very certainly hear some animal sounds. Animals produce the same sound all around the world, but different languages have different ways of expressing and spelling those sounds.

    A word of onomatopoeia is a term that sounds exactly like the noise it describes, and animal sounds come into this category. We'll look at the different animal noises and how they're written down. We'll also look at how these words fit together in a sentence and go over a thorough list of animal noises.

Letters to Newspapers

  These should always be addressed to " The  Editor," and they usually end with Yours faithfully.

  The form of salutation  is Sir/Dear Sir.

  If the writer doesnot wish his name to be published, he can sign his letter with a non -de- plume (such as   " Interested", "Anxious", "One who knows", etc); but in any case he must give his name and address (in a conveying letter) to the Editor, for no respectable newspaper will publish anonymous letters."


The Editor,

The Himalayan Times,

Anamnagar, Kathmandu.


Our Municipality wants waking up; and,as private appeals to their office have had no effect, perhaps a little publicity will do no harm. For the last month Maitidevi Road has been almost impassable. The surface is badly broken up by the heavy rains, and on a dark night it is positively dangerous for motors or carriages to pass that way. moreover, there is heaps of road metal on both sides of the road, which leave very little space in the middle. It is scandalous that we should be inconvenienced in this way for weeks, and I hope the public will bring pressure to bear on those responsible so that the road may be put in through repair without  further delay.

Yours faithfully,

Anirudra Karna

Therefore we are obliged to make the diversification for advanced technology and model production. We would like to produce models similar to your following models:

  • Solid State Telephone Answering  Machine, model PMX 108,

  • Beepless Remote Micro Cassette Telephone answering system model 1800 and
  • Automatic Telephone Answering System, model PMX 88A.
           We would be in position to produce such models if we could enter into negotiation with you and collaborate on developing your technology in Nepal. We wonder if it would be possible to do that. We would appreciate it if you could let us know at the earliest convenient time about the possiblity for collaboration for mutual interest. Thank you.

                                                                                                                              Sincerely yours,

Dear Mrs. Baral,

        We entirely appreciate you for notifying us in your letter of February 5 about the delay of our delivery of winter coats to your store. Please accept our apologies for the delay and inconvenience.

In fact, the cargo had gone astray because it was handled by one of our new clerks, and we had to retain it which ultimately resulted in the delay.

We have realised you as a good customer and have enjoyed doing bussiness with you. Therefore, we accept your terms of replacing the items.

We would also like to assure you that such a mistake will not occur again and would like to thank you for giving us an opportunity to continue our business relation.
