    Khalicivha (~ka lee shee vah)
    Na 'alu shaavu celizhva (~nah ahloo sh`aavoo suhleezhvah) ('zh' = vocalised 'sh' sound)
    lu iru'ka na liczh (~loo eeroo-kah nah leesh) ('czh' isn't quite a 'sh' sound, but it's the closest I can think of. I think Polish has a similar sound in it. It's got a little bit of the 'zh' in it too.)

    I can post a sound file of the pronunciation if desired.
