      et se a fegura do ydolo for doutra ymage que nõ seja de omẽ, se he de carneyro, poñamos que veña oespiritu máo, et entre et fale, ¿podera fazer al senõ braadar, segũdo que braada o carneyro?, çerto nõ al; et se for de cabrõ outrosi nõ fara senõ braadar, et se for de touro mudiar ou rreburdiar, et se for de çegona, ferir [cõ] os pycos et fazer aquel som que ellas fazem como taboezillas.
      and if the figure of the idol has another image different from that of a man, if it was of a ram, let's then say that the evil spirit comes and enters in it and speaks: what could the spirit do but bleat as a ram bleats? Certainly not other thing. And if the image was that of a billy goat he would only bleat, and if it was of a bull, he would moo or low; and if it was that of a stork, he would clash the beak and do that characteristic sound that the storks do, as of tablets
