    aegis - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
    Merriam-Webster Pronunciation
    Merriam-Webster Pronunciation

    Awesome! lol.. I have to say, I pronounce it like the other one you linked! tyty !
    A-Jis
    or
    E-Jis

    However, what I meant is I have heard it pronounced in ways other than those 2 .. More like the scottish dish haggis, without the "h".

    I usually pronounce any Greek word with the "ae" combo as e-whatever. That's the way I've seen it done more often than not.

    And what's with the "moderator is a ninja" pic at the bottom of the screen when you hit "reply"? I never noticed that before. Is that supposed to be there?

    Hmm, that's weird. I've ALWAYS pronounced it Ay-jis, even when my character was named Aegis. I'm honestly surprised.

    It's one of those words that enough people pronounced it wrong that it just eventually became acceptable.
