what is the general word that expresses that an animal (tiger, cat..) or poultry (chicken, duck) are saying.

We say "human talks" and what about other animals and poultry?

Example, "a cat meows", "a tiger .....", "a chicken ....", "a duck ....".

So: Is there any general word that expresses that an animal (tiger, cat..) or poultry (chicken, duck) are saying?

    Are you looking for a general word that covers ALL animal noises, from moos to baas to barks to honks? – J.R. Aug 7 '15 at 15:13

Tigers roar, chickens cluck, ducks quack. If you want one word, animals communicate via vocalization. Animals vocalize.

I'm not entirely clear on exactly what's being asked, but the word goes is relevant here:

  • The cow goes 'moo.'
  • The duck goes 'quack.'
