Recently I posted in my journal a commentary about the spelling of the word "suggest". This segued into a discussion on the pronunciation of the word "suggest", and I'm beginning to suspect that I may be one of those people who talk funny but don't realize it! OH NO!!! (Of course, like all people, I think the more obviously correct answer is that I speak normally and everybody else deviates from the one true correct way to speak, but it's not polite to say that aloud, is it? ^.^)
Before we go further, take a minute to say the word "suggest" a few times.
If you're a native speaker
If you're not a native speaker
Since the two main pronunciations seem to be "sug jest" and "suh jest", if you say "sug jest"
And if you say "suh jest"
Please comment with more information, including where you're from. (I despair of getting all possible English-speaking countries in a poll, so I didn't bother.)
