Is 'age' 'Portage' pronounced softly, as in 'damage', or softly, as in 'mirage? I'm pretty sure it's prounced like damage, but someone keeps saying it like mirage and I want to settle this once and for all.

Always assumed as in 'damage'. I've heard it as 'age' though (that is, as in how old someone is), which was also irritating!

I believe the correct way to pronounce the age is like the age in damage. I think that is the correct way to say portage in English.

Moved from Gentoo Chat to Duplicate Threads in favour of How do you pronounce things?
