    Default How do you pronounce Regumate?

    I just want to know if I'm pronouncing it correctly

    Reg-u-mate or reh-gem-ate?

    We always call it Rej You Mate based on all the vets' pronounciation (including UC Davis vets).

    I always thought it rhymed with "regulate" for the obvious reason. No marketing person would have named it anything else or pronounced it any other way.

    Well, g with an i, y, or e next to it may have a soft g sound like juh as in judge, gyrate or gist. G with an i next to it may also have a hard g sound as in gilded or gizmo. I can't think of any examples of g having a soft sound when it is followed by a 'u'. I have lots of examples of g having a hard sound: gust, guzzle or gullible. So you may think that I have a lot of gumption to make this comment but my vote goes with the hard g sound for Regumate. If you vote for the soft g sound then maybe you'd better start saying you will juzzle your drink or not be too jullible.

    This.
    I don't know how the reh-je-mate got started, and even a lot of vets pronounce it that way, but it really is supposed to be as described above. As in short-hand for "regulates mating".

    I think it may depend on the speakers regional accent.

    It's funny, i first heard of regumate on these forums and automatically gave it the grammatically incorrect pronunciation (j sound), but i've heard it spoken as a hard g sound.
