Pronunciation of FAGA
Posted by: Ricky Franz (ID *****4811) Date: May 12, 2002 at 09:52:20

My Dad, whose mother was a FAGA, always pronounced it, "Fay-Gee", the "G" pronounced as in goose rather than juice. These are German Fagas who wound up in southwest Iowa via Pennsylvania. Many of the same family are still in the Carbon County, Pa area I understand. Would this be the way Germans say it or would it have picked up some midwest flavor at some point? Any one know?
