Indeed I did several years ago at a visiting Scottish lecturer. He let fly at me with invective in a very broad Scottish accent of which only two words I managed to understand "ignorant Australian" I retaliated, of course, with "You can't intimidate me, even if you lose the trousers and paint your face blue" I then noticed his face was in fact turning blue and made a hasty exit.

Hi janilye,

the Maori alphabet is - A E H I K M N Ng O P R T U W Wh
The place name above has gained a measure of fame as it is the longest place-name found in any English-speaking country and it is the second longest place-name in the world

The name is often shortened to Taumata by the locals for ease of conversation

AND NOW, because you asked :) ...

here is someone pronouncing the word Taumata - turn your speakers up ...

Very good ng. Shame nobody will ever hear me pronounce Mamungkukumpurangkuntjunya
