    Sorry for the waste of space, but this has been bugging me for the longest time, and I always meant to ask my English teacher.

    He he...
    As a native french speaker, this has bugged me for a while, I used to say ParadeeGGem [​IMG]
    It is pronouced Para-dime (dime, as in 10 cents...). The dictionary can help you with this, since it is a common noun.

    I overheard their rep pronounce it "Pair-uh-dig-'em", and I'll stick to that produnciation.

    "dig-em"????
    Its a common word:
    par·a·digm [pérra- dim]
    unfortunately i dont know how to place the - over the i which would indicate a sound for the letter i like in the word "ICE".
    Its in any dictionary.
    Just cuz the rep says it one way doesnt mean its correct.
    I remember David Birch Jones from Denon saying "Dee-non" despite other higher ups saying it was just "De-nin"
    But then, Denon isnt exactly in the Dictionary [​IMG]
