You can say oh- marj if you are French, American or a pseud.

hommidge, but I'm happy to discover I'm an oik!

Hom-Arge - an amalgamation that is not correct yet not entirely wrong so no one questions it <cunning>

om-marj. Hommidge??? That's like saying nuggit for nougat!!

BitOfFun Fri 24-Jun-11 21:35:08

Hommidge if paying homage to somebody/something. If taking about poncey film directors etc. I say oh-marzhe.

Hommidge... Oh-marj is too pretentious, even by my extreme standards.

would you say "dressidge"? No, so why be so shy of pronoucing "hommage" properly??

Bumperlicioso Fri 24-Jun-11 21:55:04

Actually I've realised is "an om-arj" but "pay hommidge to"

My dad always said 'nuggit' growing up.

On the actual point though, I do what BoF does.

talkingnonsense Fri 24-Jun-11 22:22:27

Oh no! I say oh marj and dh says hommidge and I wanted to be unequivocally right!!

BelleDameSansMerci Fri 24-Jun-11 22:26:17

I think Bumperlicious has it actually... I would never "pay oh-marj to" but I would say "it's an oh-marj".

I probably wouldn't say "an 'otel" though even though it's correct. grin

what BoF said.
