We all know that "There are no stupid questions" is just a smart way to laugh with people, but still: how do you pronounce "kegerator"? "keggherator" or "kedzjerator"? My fortunately significantly different other says it's "kedzjerator", although she has no clue as to what that word refers to. Since I have made it my life's mission to prove people wrong I sincerely hope it's  "keggherator".

I was curious what somebody from the Northeast would say. My nephews pronounce some words horribly. Mundie and wader are two that drive me nuts.

kej-car-WHOA-ter.  Here in the Midwest, this is how we say it.  It sounds like you're speaking a different language.  Like a language they would speak on another planet or something.  Okay, kidding.  Keg-er-ator and it's a "hard G"... basically KEG and the last part of refrig... ERATOR.  Now, how do you pronounce PERLE and DIACETYL?  :D
