It looks like you're trying to say Ha'DIbaH. It means "animal". (altho,
sometimes it does get translated as "dog".)
The H is pronounced kind of like the ending of the german composer Bach.
The I should be like a short i as in "bit", but for some reason a lot of people
insist on pronouning it like "ee".
You can hear it in the movie StarTrek III, I belive it is.
Kor also says it once (or twice) on DS9.
If someone doesn't already have a sound file on their website, I could create
one for you.
