Correct Pronunciation of “Schillinger”

February 11, 2008

Some of you might have wondered how to correctly pronounce Schillinger’s last name. Is the “-ger” at the end of it pronounced with a soft “g” sound, as in “giant,” or with a hard “g,” as in “gain”? I asked Mrs. Schillinger this question in 1996, and she said it always annoyed her when people used the soft “g” sound. She said it was with a hard “g.” Thus, it is “Schill-ing-ger,” as if you are growling at the end.
