    Username pronunciation

    I started this thread because I was interested in knowing how Googooboyy's name is pronunced? Is it goo-goo-boy (with extra long 'e' sound on "boy" and the 'o's in "goo" pronounced "ew"), or is it "go-go-boy" and we carry out the 'o' sound when we say "go?"

    I pronounce my name "jeh-ne/na-sis f 5." How about you?

    Its Goo, as in 'Guu'. But do note that the stress is on the final syllable, which falls on the double y. So GooGooBoyy sounds like, 'guu-guu-boi-ee'.

    Now class dismissed.

    How do you say gerbick?

    From what I understand, it's pronounced with a hard 'G' like gerbil with an -ick at the end instead.

    I've only been able to read it with a soft 'G' like in go.

    Yasu, your "hard G" and "soft G" example words are backwards.

    "Gerbil" has a soft G sound, and "Go" has a hard G sound.

    "Gerbick" is hard like "Go" or "Growl" as in the song sample.

    (You should have used the example of "Rouge" for soft G, and "Rogue" for hard G just to really confuse everyone... lol)

    I had no idea. I too have only used a (hard, according to LR) G when reading it.

    Stop it, you're confusing me. Is it gerbick or jerbick?
