Some pronunciations of 'beige', 'garage' and other (generally French)
recent borrowings. It isn't possible and the more nativised they are,
the more likely they are to become /dZ/ in many dialects (e.g. 'garage',
which is a perfectly normal, every-day word, is /"g&ra:dZ/ in my
dialect, whereas 'beige', being a less-normal word is still /b&iZ/.
