Isengard no!

Just ran across that dumb "They're taking the hobbits to Isengard!" music video again, and was suddenly reminded that the movies consistently pronounce Isengard wrong (as do many, many readers).

It's not EYE-sengard. It's about halfway between EE-sengard and IZ-engard.

Thanks for the pronunciation tip on Isengard. I was saying the wrong thing the whole time. Hopefully EYE-sengard is a little easier to say.
