You might whistle to call your dog, but do you whistle at your cat? How about your duck (okay, maybe you're short on ducks right now, but you get the idea). "Here, chick, chick, chick . . ." works, but "Here, cat, cat, cat . . ." just sounds silly.
From Dinneen's fascinating dictionary, here are six sounds you might use to call animals:
beadaí; bhuaró; fíní; pís; sas; tiuc.
Which would you use to attract the attention of a:
bull; cat; dog; duck; goose; hen?
