Apparently, the sound we make while sneezing is a cultural thing, and deaf people sneeze silently.

In France, one of the seven dwarves is known as “Atchoum”. Nevertheless, the sound is close to what the English do.
Every Korean sneeze is outting some Japanese dude as a pervert…
czech : “hap-cheek”
In Spanish, “achís” is the official onomatopoeia, but you can also hear “achús” or “atchús” :)
In spanish: achís
Achís (achees) and Achú (achoo).
En realidad es Achú
Es mas frecuente oir gente que resalta el sonido de la ‘s’ cuando estornuda. Por eso usualmente se utiliza “achis” en lugar de “achú”.
In Dutch: Hatsjoe
It’s the same with other “sounds” as well.
I am Polish and my American boyfriend was very suprised that roosters in Poland go “kukuryku” (koo-koo-ree-koo) not “Cocka-doodle-doo”.
Hungarian: “Hapci!” (~hɒptsi)
Iceland Atsjú, I think that is the right spelling
Danish: Ah-tju. Spelling may vary, but atju, a-tju, ah-tju is all the same. If it’s a prolonged sneeze just fill in extra a’s. ;)
Confirmed from another Danish man… Also i am spotting a tendensy where women sneeze silently or silently’er than men, and men are very loud.
In Romania is “hapciu” and the rooser goes “cucurigu” :D
apparently i sneeze in japanese or close enough makes no difference. technically i sneeze ryu/ken moves from street fighter
Dutch: Hatsjoe or Hatsjie.
Because everybody knows that native Poles are black.
