    please help with pronounciation

    The word is "ragged"

    как произносится "g"?? как "г" или как "дж"

    может быть кто-нибудь даст ссылочку на правила произношения?
    нашла много в интеренете, но ничего на тему "g".

    Спасибо!

    There are two pronunciations for "ragged". It depends on the meaning.

    The word "ragged" can mean "extremely tired", "burnt out".
    Example: The kids are running me ragged.
    In this case it would be pronounced "рагед".

    The verb "to rag" can also mean "to give (somebody) a hard time", "to tease", "to torment", "to play jokes (on somebody)", etc.
    Example: He ragged on me yesterday. He put red peppers in my lemonade.
    In this case it would be pronounced "рагд".
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.
