Just curious...

I say it the ol american way - "sah-z"... but I'm pretty sure some people pronounce it like "zah-ts", "Sartz", or "Jah-tets".

"Zaatz" is how they pronounce it in the Czech Republic.

S = ess
a = ah
a = ah
z = tz

Sah-ahtz, but only as one syllable.

What about Briess? Is it "breese" or is it "breeze" or is it "br-ice"? Never heard it spoken before . . .
