For me, the main source of SAS pronunciation confusion has always been
"SUGI". Since the "G" in SUGI stands for "Group" (hard G), I would
have expected the G in SUGI to be a hard G, leading to the
pronunciation "SOO-gee". However, the universal pronunciation appears
to be "SOO-jee", with a soft G. Are there any
explanations/legends/rumors as to why this is so?
