uhh...I could say the names in my language:
cat: demet
dog:wesha

this is in amharic, which is the official language of Ethiopia.

In Turkish, you're taught that a dog says: "Hav hav"
and a cat says "miyav miyav"
LoL, it's funny, I've never actually heard a dog say "Woof" or "Yelp" or "bark"

Dog: Vov-vov
Cat: jam (not jam, but yam with a long 'a' as in car. If you say yam,yam quickly many times, it becomes meow as in English).

My language, Swedish. Though I am Dano-Welsh originally.

By convention it should be :

dog - woof
cat- meow

here in TX, but I've never understood why, as my animals have always spoken to me in perfect english. (admittedly the cat sometimes lapses into latin when it's tired)

dog - vuh or hau
cat- miau

Miau is pronounced exactly like meow and vuh almost like woof.

[edit] Oh yeah, the language is finnish.[/edit]

I think someone's got the wrong topic :wink:
(unless of course, those are the words a dog/cat actually says in your language)

I highly doubt they mention this subject in any situation other than one of extreme solitude and secrecy. After all, their joint monopoly of two-way time travel sets up the more affluent in their society for pretty cushy lives. Why risk spreading the information that could upset this system?

our dog says: let me lap your face with my precious glam (aka doggie slobber)

our cat says: get that beast with the big fat tongue away from me...

In japanese dogs say "wan wan" with long a's as in car. Which I think is hilarious, it doesn't sound like a dog worth beens, but don't try telling a japanese person that dogs say woof or bark.
