How to Pronounce G?

Correct pronunciation for the word "G" is [d͡ʒˈiː], [d‍ʒˈiː], [dʒ_ˈiː].

Definition of G

  1. The seventh letter and the fifth consonant of the English alphabet. It has two sounds; one hard or close, as before a, o, u, l, and r, as in gave, got, gut, glue, grow; and the other soft, like the letter j, before e and i, as gem and gibbet; though in a few words of German origin it is sounded hard before e and i, as in get and begin; and generally when the g is doubled, as in dagger, &c. It is silent in some words, as benign, condign. As a numeral, G was anciently used to denote 400, and, with a dash over it, 40,000. In music, it is the mark of the treble clef; and, from its being placed at the head, or marking the first sound in Gnido's scale, the whole scale took the name gamut, from gamma, the Greek name of the letter.
