    Pronounce "Bergger"

    Okay, here's a dumb question from someone who took two years of French in college (34 years ago) but couldn't place an order in a restaurant when I went to Quebec. What's the correct pronounciation of "Bergger"?

    "Bare-zhay" if you're in France. "Burger" if you're in Maine.

    Berg-i-er if you're in England.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Forte? Kidding, kidding. Always heard it pronounced as with "cheese".

    I can easily pronounce "Bergger" in French, but usually I take the easy way out and pronounce it in German. Just the same as Trimbach Riesling Vendange Tardive...

    Don't ask me to even try to write any of those phonetically for English-speakers.

    While we're on it I was given two rolls of 35mm of this film 200 speed while at the Photo EXPO in NYC October by the USA representative. I've been a little hesitant to try it. I mostly do street shooting with 400 speed film mostly Delta 400 in D-76 1+1. Anybody have experience or suggestions. Would the D-76 work well with this film.
