    The longest place name in the world, all 83 letters of it, can be found in New Zealand. Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamate-aturipukakapimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu. Translation? "The brow of the hill where Tamatea, the man with the big knees who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains, to travel the land, played his flute to his loved one". Got it?


    Epic.

    What happened here then? Did village idiot create a wiki page to troll hgananvak? If so it's been deleted. kmauaua can't be a Maori word, as Maori words can't have two consonants in a row. Ng is the exception.
