      Tay is pronounced the same as say.

      Hope this helps

      My people came from Hawkhill circa 1840! But for those of us
      Americans challenged in the Language: Define "toerag", please.
      Does it have to do with socks, or the lack thereof?

      I know "posh" comes from the designation P.O.S.H. on your ticket
      and where your cabin was on the ship.

      Also...how do natives pronounce "TAY"? Is it said like "say" or
      "tie"? I've heard both. Thank you, in advance.
