Foley h-oh-g or Foley H-oh-ah-g? Right pronunciation?

Postby objctnyrhnr » Tue May 15, 2018 8:46 am

Do you pronounce the firm Foley hoag with one or two syllables in the second word? Is it Foley h-oh-g (one syl), or Foley ho-ah-g? I’ve heard it done both ways by people at other BL firms so I wanted to check

The "oh" is not pronounced at all and the a is pronounced like the a in bag, i.e., "Foley H-ag". :mrgreen:

Please don't rely on this post - it is objectively wrong. Hoe-Ag is right. I promise.
