Anyway! As it's too confusing to work up a poll (and tedious to post it separately on DW and LJ since the two systems don't crosspost polls), I'm just asking you:
how do you pronounce "ogle" and where did you pick it up?I'm "oh-gle," to rhyme with "mogul," and most likely got it from central Texas, where I grew up.
(I still think "oggle" and "oogle" are COMPLETELY WRONG but it's a free country and you are entitled to disagree.
EDIT: The OED is back up for me! Yup, it says "oggle" is American:
Pronunciation: Brit. /ˈəʊɡl/ , U.S. /ˈoʊɡ(ə)l/ , /ˈɑɡ(ə)l/Although I suppose I should have added "uggle" to the poll as a fourth option!
