It seems like there are no objections, so here's the new word:

hian di cot
[çan dɪ kot]

(technically this is three words, but it's a set phrase, like qwed's)

Is hian "dog"? I realize that's probably a bit of a stretch, but my first impression was that it reminded me of French chien, so I thought I might as well ask, just in case.
