The Japanese language has a lot of onomatopoeia.
Regarding ‘lion’s roar’, what Kelly Canaan san mentioned is correct.

I totally enjoyed this! Thanks! 😄
This was really cute. Whoever voiced this definitely had a lot of fun. Some of the sounds made me giggle. What snakes say, sounds rather creepy.
I really enjoyed this and it was quite informative.
In English, we say elephants trump or trumpet………….?
To Paul, I think you can still say, for example, “raion ha gaooo to hoeru,” which means more like “The lion roars/says ‘gaooo’” I think.
Does an elephant say anything in Japanese? I don’t think English has a written word for it…
Japanese seems to like onomatopoeia but doesn’t seem to have many words for the sounds themselves. There are: hoeru, naku, tobu (to fly?), & oto wo tateru, which seem to be quite vague.
Also, the Japanese sentences seem to be structured differently. It looks like, for example: ‘Lion’s call; “Gaō” and roar’. Is it just an idiom I haven’t learned yet…?
