Dear Ross,
There are a number of pronunciations in use, the most widely accepted being
"jerrigonny". Some hignoramusses however say "Jerry Gone" as in an absent
German fellow.

As for Warbler, I guess we say "Warbler" as in singing, or as in French "
War-bleu", ie, as in sacre bleu or Oh my Gawd.

How do you say Tabor? Ist es Taybor or Tarbor ?  We know how to say Iowa -
hear it all the time on telly.

Next question ?
