Lost in Translation

Had an entertaining conversation with one of the kids in my class the other day who wanted me to tell him how to spell a word. However his pronunciation wasn't great so I had some difficulty.
"how do you spell Y?" he said.
"W - H - Y" I answered.
" no Y" he repeated.
"W-I-D-E?" I tried.
"No, Y. Like Wipe your Butt!"
Needless to say I couldn't spell it for him as I was laughing so much. However, was very impressed that this was the only sentence he could come up with!
