Listen to Pink Floyd's album Wish you Were Here.

"He always ate at the steak bar.
Loved to drive in his jag-you-are."

Listen to Terry Bradshaw on Fox's NFL pre-game and post-game shows. (And the halftime show too.)

Yeah, no I'm not going to do that. You can irregardless all you want but this word is pronounced jag-you-are. So sayeth Roger Waters, so sayeth we all.

For years I didn't know that the g in Zegna is silent. Now whenever someone says "Nice Jag-war," I can be a condescending ass and correct them.

I am just kidding, of course. I'm not sure how common that pronunciation is outside the United States, but it's fairly common here.

Thanks!
Yeah. The sucky part was that they had me do it for 6 before I got the axe too. So yeah. I hear ya. Let the negotiations begin!
Sounds like you've been a good team player in an impossible situation. Hope you at least got a sizeable severance to tide you over

You'll do a lot of correcting. teacha.gif

Every now and then I'll do a little teaching when someone says Porsch instead of PorSHA. laugh.gif Gets tiring after awhile though.

I won't lie to you all: I say JAY-GWAR both for the animal and for the car. Since the proper name is also a common noun, it feels weird to me to switch all of a sudden into British English to say the name.
