Foreign athlete's feet

    Oh, if we're collecting foreign languages, it's Schwoißfiaß in my local German dialect, Swabian (Schwäbisch). Try to pronounce that :).

      "Schwoi▀fia▀."

      How was my accent?

      Or was I supposed to pronounce "that"?

        Hey, that's quite close already! :)

    heh, not really... Not in the context that it's mostly associated with and as tye clarified - it's a common disease. So there's no "tripperi". :o)
      You're right, my bad.
      I've checked dictionary and now it is "dermatofitoz" or "mikoz"...
      Interesting enough that "athletic heart" means good health, and this is probably a trick of voting booth

      English teacher warned us about such words that act like false frends of translators.
