“Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotameteaturipukaka-
pikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenakitanatahu”

is the Maori name for a hill 300 meters high in Australia. The longer version of the name, with an additional seven letters, is translated as “The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who traveled about, played his flute to his loved one.”
