Terngirl asked Lois McMaster Bujold:

How is Gotorget pronounced? I am listening to the audio book and they pronounce it "Go-tor-get" with a hard 'g'. When I read it I pronounce it with the second 'g' as soft, "Go-tor-jeh".

Lois McMaster Bujold
I pronounce it with the hard g. Both of them.

While I am on the subject, my last name is pronounced with a French, not a Spanish J. I can always tell when someone is from the Southwest when they try to pronounce it "Boo-hold". It's actually "Boo-jhold". (I'm told my ex's family used to pronounce it "Bee-jou", even more confusing.)

Ta, L.
