Quack

Ducks “quack” (graznido) or make the sound “quack-quack (cuac cuac). This is the noun.

The word “quack” (graznar) is also a verb. An example: the duck is quacking (graznando).

There are other uses of the word. There are quack doctors (medicuchos o curanderos), and such doctors have “quack remedies or medicines” (medicinas curanderas). Such doctors practice “quackery” (curanderismo).

So we have to be careful to avoid quack doctors and their quackery, but hearing a duck quack may be a pleasure.
