Ga-ridge or Ga-rah-ge is a British distinction: on the other side of the pond it's guh-rahzh or guh-rahj, according to the dictionaries.

"avast"  Of course the speaker has an American accent  ::)

Oo.... I just checked it out and know what actually the avast meaning of. Before this I thought the name "avast!" is a own word name but actually there's meaning at the back of "avast". I just know that avast means stop. ;D

Click on the audio. ( The little speaker)

I concur with this one ... both the Audio version and the Pronunciation Key.  Right on the money!  I don't really agree with that it's pronounced the same as - Flower.  I guess it depends where one is from and what the dialect is there.  In MY case, I would pronounce "Flower" with a more pronounced "w."  Thus, that's why I can't say that I personally would pronounce "Flour" and "Flower" the same.

Who ever said the off topic category was closed  ::) Isn't this suppose to be an anti virus forum. :o   

From what I read in the description for this particular Forum, it states, "Anything and everything about this Board."   Therefore, it is NOT designated as an Anti-Virus ... avast! Anti-Virus ... Malware ... Computers ... or even Technology Forum.  Even then though, I've always interpreted the General Topics Forum to be for basically all Non-avast! Topics ... but, still in the general area of Computers / Technology.  This with a little bit of leeway for venturing slightly into other areas, with discretion and maintaining control NOT to go wild into full-blown Off Topic Status.  Maybe NOT even an Off Topic Forum Proxy.   ;D
