The hardest "English" thing

The hardest "English" thing I've had to get used to over here is that McKay is not pronounced "mick-kay" but rather "mick-eye". I won't even get started on Maori words and pronunciation. There is a town here, that my hubby learned a mnemonic for the spelling, it was one of the first things he 'taught' me about spelling Maori name places, and to this day, I can't pronounce the name, but say "nine girls running" if I want him to know about which town I'm speaking...
