I always pronounced it /1sN=gard/, with an English "short i" sound and an
/s/. But as usual, i'm the guy who pronounces the E in Numenor as if it
were both stressed and Russian :P

the Numenoreans who became selfish
and thought that they were gods.
but Ocean rose up over them,
and traded them to the Underworld
for Murex-shells and pebbles,
and for glitterings of light.)
