    Sounds

    Hello
    I'd like to know what you would say when you ride:
    1) Horses (For going faster, for stopping)
    2) Donkeys
    -----------------------
    And the name of sound you say for
    1) Dog (for sending away or ....)
    2) Cats (for keeping at a distance or .....)
    3) Rooster, Hens, And Chicks (For Feeding and ....)
    -----------------------
    Miscellaneous questions:)
    1. Is my verb "Send Away" or "Keep At Distance" correct? if Not, What do you use most?

    2. Is the word "Peasant" common when you want to point to somebody? Can I say peasant boy/peasant dish/peasant clothes and ...... Is this word offensive? if not, which word is offensive

    3.The word used when a guy ride his bike or bicycle only on one wheel?
    -----------------------
    Sorry for surplus of questions

    2) Donkeys The same.
    -----------------------
    And the name of sound you say for ????
    1) Dog (for sending away or ....) "Off"; "down"; "out"
    2) Cats (for keeping at a distance or .....) Maybe "shoo"
    3) Rooster, Hens, And Chicks (For Feeding and ....) "Chook chook chook" repeated
    -----------------------
    Miscellaneous questions:)
    1. Is my verb "Send Away" or "Keep At Distance" correct? if Not, What do you use most? It is not quite clear what you are intending. Can you explain more.

    2. Is the word "Peasant" common when you want to point to somebody? Can I say peasant boy/peasant dish/peasant clothes and ...... Is this word offensive? if not, which word is offensive Pretty much obsolete in the Western world. We have very few true peasant communities left. It is not a word I would encourage anywhere - unless the local people use it of themselves.

    3.The word used when a guy ride his bike or bicycle only on one wheel? monocyclist.

    Possibly you are looking for "doing wheelies"?
