    Here's a cool one for you. I'm from South Africa and lots of people speak Zulu here.

    So 'hello' in Zulu is "sawubona'' (sar who bore na)

    hello in Afrikaans is just "hello" =)

    Hope I helped, I know lots of people find South African languages quite cool =)

    In Persian we have "salaam" or "dorood".

    By the way, the correct pronunciation is "EGGS-ACTLY" lol
