Pronounciation of "homage"?

I've always said "HOM-idge". Now I hear more people on TV say "oh-MAJ".

The online pronounciations I've found (3 of them) are all the former.

How do YOU say it?

OH-mage, or something like that LOL. But, I always read way above me grade level and taught myself these words long before they got to pronunciation, so 9 out of 10 times I am wrong LOL.

Perhaps this will help. You can even hear a pronunciation if you click on the "speaker" icon.

depends upon whether you want to use the American or French pronounciation. In "American," it's OMij or HOMij. In French, it would be Oh-MAZH.

same thing with "Hermitage." In English, it's HERmitij. In French, airmeeTAZH
