Onomatopoeia

I spent three hours this afternoon escorting a visiting delegation of healthcare workers from the People's Republic of China around the department.  My feet are killing me but I now know the Chinese for STD.

It's "xing-bing."

Another phrase to add to my "Word Oddities" - like learning to say "don't shoot, I'm a table" in Finnish and Spanish. Thanks, Shay!
