What's "The GARR-ij"?
I LOVE that car! That IS my car. That will BE my car!
"GARR-ij" is how the British pronounce the word garage.
As an Englishman, I can assure you that there is no such thing as "how the British pronounce" any word. As a man fluent in the English language, I can assure you that, even if there were such a thing as "British pronunciation," you have massacred it with your attempt at phonetic spelling. "GARR-ij" is a monstrosity and does not correspond to the way anyone says the word "garage."
Well first, they don't make Englishmen the way they used to, and check a dictionary.
Whatever, Richard. Everything you know about the English you picked up from watching Downton Abbey.Also, the OED supports St. John on the pronunciation point. As a professed (if ill-informed and misguided) Anglophile, you ought to take that as the final authority.
The pronunciation of UK garage uses British English /ˈɡærɨdʒ/ GARR-ij, rather than American English /ɡəˈrɑːʒ/ gə-RAHZH.
