      Can I expand on this further?
       
      In reports, should kriging, kriged, and krige be written with an uppercase
      K, or lowercase as shown here?
       
      Regards,
      Colin

      > Dutch-fashion, where the "g" is a kind of throat-clearing sound,
      More like the "ch" in the Scottish loch or like the greek letter chi which
      forms the first letter in Christos.
       
      If you want to be pedantic, the technique was not named "kriging" by
      Matheron but "krigeage" - a attempt to turn "krige" into a noun. This is
      pronounced 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.
