Date: Mon, 7 Aug 1995 11:25:20 -0400 From: Ellen Johnson Subject: hummies The LAMSAS files for the "name for the sound a cow makes" (what a fascinating wealth of trivia we have!!) include lots of instances of "hum" along with "low" and "moo". Some informants distinguish this from "moo" as the SOFT sound of the animal instead of the loud one. BUT calf sounds are a different file, with answers like "bawl" and "maa".
