    Also, 'hog' is a word used by specialists (market traders, farmers...). For most people the everyday word is 'pig'. A pig grunts; the onomatopoeic word is 'oink oink'.

    Re: sound made by a hog

    Many thanks. So a hog is actually a pig. I know a pig grunts, not knowing that a hog is a pig.

    Many thanks. So a hog is a pig. So naturally, like a pig, it grunts.

    Well, it is for most people! I'm sure someone with specialist knowledge will tell us there's a difference.

    A cute little pig oinks and squeals. A big ol' hog grunts and snorts.

    A little Korean boy, all of three, told me an owl "poo-poos" in the tree. (Of course he meant who-whoed.) Watch your heads!
