Name a word with two consecutive Gs in which one makes the soft sound and the other the hard sound, not necessarily in that order.

I would. But, I don't want to give it away. 😉

How do you pronounce that word? I only hear a soft g.

Sug, like dug, gest, like jest.

Weird. I've never heard it pronounced that way.

Do you pronounce it as suh-jest?

Suh-jest!??? Surely you jest.

Yes that's roughly how I pronounce it.

According to Dictionary.com and OED, it's not incorrect.

I'm just jesting. I *knew* some people use that pronunciation, I've just never met one ;)

Unless, of course, you are suggesting a different word than the one I'm thinking of.
