This ispronounced with a very soft 'g' almost a 'sh' sound.Most of the other 'foreign' versions use a hard 'g':krigaggio, krigovanie kriggage (quebecois) and so on.Almost everyone I know use the short 'i' as in pig.Isobel
- Well, well. I didn't expect to start such a tempest with my question!
Since I have a last name that many seem to mispronounce (using a long
"o" as in "glow" instead of the proper short "o" as in "love"), I should
have asked how D. Krige pronounced his last name.
I appreciate everyone's information, opinion, and speculation on this.
