Hi all, this may be a stupid question but can someone please give me the phonetic pronunciation of "Kgaligadi", most people seem not to pronounce the "k".
Thanks :

My best attempt would be"Galagadi"...where the "g" is a guttoral sound, like you had something in the back of you throat you were trying to clear....not sure if that makes sense!!!!

The "k" is silent , like "p" in "water". :whistle:
