    Is it with a soft 'G', as in gin, or like 'jinsters'

    Or is it with a hard 'G'?

    This is a matter of great debate...

    I pronounce it jinsters....like gin - sters. But then I'm the only person who still pronounces controversy correctly with the emphasis on the second (not third) syllable (or at least the only person I know).
