'liege' with  ZH; maybe the speaker is trying to sound more French. The
Normans had lieges and so on.  So, with respect to those old social
classes... However, the garage hardly seems to be the place to be puttin' on
airs.  When I hear some hick from Indiana say 'garazh' I snicker.

What is it in Urdu (would that be the language that the guy (people) spoke who named it?). I don't think it would be Hindi.
