Tar-ghey.

I mean, I always pronounce it as "Sterling" at the LHBS because they NEVER have Saaz!

I'd vote for "Zaatz" as the most correctificated way of saying it, but really I'd probably pronounce it however the guy at the LHBS says it. Otherwise, while I'm being super-authentic, he'd have no idea what the hell I'm talking about.

I don't really care what the "right" way to pronounce it is but I mine rhymes with Jazz.

If you've ever read the series called "The Wheel of TIme" or really ANY fanatasy books you're bound to stop caring how to pronounce things.

Robert Jordan began all of his public speeches with pronunciations.

Egwene, Mazrim Taim, Logaine, Nynaeve, Aes Sedai, Asha'man, Tel'aran'rhiod..

I always thought, "sahz," but I guess I know better now.

I wonder how many of us can correctly pronounce the following?

wort
trub
krausen

I prefer to think that if he wants his name to be a symbol with no associated letters or sounds, I get to pronounce it however I want. My pronunciation is as follows:

\ˈdüsh-ˌbag\
