Esto de bable como sabeis tiene sus variaciones dependiendo de la zona de Asturias de la que hablemos,en el caso de esta palabra en mi zona para decir "arañar" decimos "esgarduñar".

Thanks, Terechu. That's an interesting expression. Is the connection of cat and scratching the scratches that cats give us?

Briendes, how do you say "cat" in your region?

Gracias, Terechu. Es una expresión muy interesante. ¿Es la conexión entre el gato y arañar o rascar los arañazos que los gatos nos dan?

¿Briendes, cómo se dice "gato" en tu zona?

Decimos "gatu" como en el resto de Asturias,en diminutivo seria "gatin" o "gatucu".
