    I'm just curious to know! I pronounce it Smog, because I think it sounds nastier (connotations of Pollution etc) and c'mon - the guy grinds up bones for his 'feed'. Who even eats 'feed'!?










    ...inb4 Oreo and Smores silly

    I guess Smog would be closest to how i pronounce it. I pretty much pronounce it the way i pronounce ''mouth'' S(mouth)g. Shrug

    I pronounce it Smooog like in "move" big grin
    But I suspect you pronounce it like Gough (which, by the way, I though was Gooog like "move" again, but he himself said like he said it...)

    Ornstein (Orn-Stein(as in beer stein, mug.))
    Smough (Smo) I interpreted that the gh is silent - I pronounce Gough as Go or Goff as in van Gogh

    I always thought Smog. I always called the Tolkien dragon the same thing. Now I need to watch the cartoon again to see how they say it

    The 'g' in Smough is silent. So it sounds like Smouh.

    I've always thought it was pronounced Smawff or maybe Smouff...but because of the Tolkien, I say it as Smaug.

    Speaking of names, i used to pronounce Artorias, Atouas, in an attempt to sound french. It didn't sound very good.

    Take your pick I say.

    all those words, sounds normal to me with F

    Couff, Enouff, Rouff...


    With the exception of SMOUGH! That sounds way better with G in the end!

    Smaug. Thats how I pronounce it.

    My pronunciation of anything I don't know for sure changes randomly, but most commonly I say it as S-mou(as in MOUse)-g, so pretty much a literal pronunciation. As for Gough, I tend to say it like gouge just because I think it sounds cool
