Smaug ?

Post#1 » Fri Jan 28, 2011 2:47 pm

Is it pronounced Smorg or Smawg ? Always said Smorg myself, but have heard Smawg said quite
often. Its pronounced Smawg on the audio CD.

I've always said "Smawg" myself. I never really thought of saying "Smorg" since there's no R. Sweet painting, by the way. Do you know who made it? :D

I like the painting too, it's very similar to how I imagine it when I read the book :) As to the pronounciation, I pronounce it Smawg as well.

Have to say I'm in the 'Smorg' camp myself.

I'm curious, is the 'r' silent, or do you pronounce it?

I tend to sound it as written, maybe from the fact tht I first read the book at 10! I can see how Smawg may be more accurate, but he's always been smorg to me!

I'm trying to remember in which scene they say "Smaug" instead of "the dragon" in LOTR but I can't remember. Does anyone else? :?:
