Today, I heard a twenty-something-year-old say "SEH guh" and confirmed
with a 21-year-old that both "SEH guh" and "SAY guh" are fine. I would
say "SEH GUH" in Japanese, but only "SAY guh" in English. Perhaps my
lack of media watching.

Also, I noticed the AHD doesn't give AUT LEE ur for "outlier." The
word Outliers is on the lips of many today as the title of Gladwell's
book. I'm trying to change from AUT LEE ur to OUT LAI ur as soon as
possible so I seem less unhip. BB
