    How do you pronounce it?

    Swaging with a "long A" or a "short A"?

    I always pronounce it wrong, and I usually spell it wrong too, LOL.

    That's like asking how to spell B...,you know, the things that come out of the front of guns. Just do it.

    I asked because I hear so many people pronounce it "Swagg" with a short "A". To me, swagg is a lamp from the 1960's.

    We always called "SWAG" a simple wild (synonym for derriere) guess.

    You say swage like you would with the words:Page, age, sage, mage, cage, rage, stage. Not like the words: wedge, edge, badge, lag, bag, tag, stag, hag, gag, rag.

    Swag(ging) is also a slang term: bold self-confidence of behaviour or style.
