London-based design studio FL@33 updated their popular, award-winning and self-initiated bzzzpeek.com project. The amusing sound collection now includes 21 countries. Submissions are very welcome. So please do get involved if you can.
Bzzzpeek.com is presenting a collection of ‘onomatopoeia’ from around the world using sound recordings from native speakers imitating the sounds of mainly animals and vehicles. This project focuses on the pronunciation and comparison of these sounds by presenting them side by side as each language expresses them differently. Bzzzpeek.com is an interactive experience inviting everybody to contribute.
