Over the last couple of days, FLG has heard the word "presage" spoken on television three times. Every one of those times the word was pronounced pri-ˈsāj.

FLG has always pronounced this word ˈpre-sij. According to Merriam-Webster, both are correct. But we all know that's poppycock. The correct way is pre-sij.

Huh. I would have said that the first proununciation indicates the verb, the second the noun.
