Pooies even us saffies have to take out teeth out to say that one.
How about Uitenhage just outside Port Elizabeth
the English say yout en haige
I can say the Afrikaans version but how do you write it phonetically

In Cape Town there is a street : Buitenkant street , meaning " outside street , but english speakers pronounce it like in beautiful as " beautenkant street " .

What's even worse , we also have a street which was originally named after the canal ( in dutch ) , and called Buitengracht street . Try and pronounce that one english wise :doh:
