I thought that was a Texas thang. Here on the moist coast we say Jag-oo-are.

I grew up in North Carolina and we pronounced it Jag-wahr there as well. Perhaps the Moist Coast is the exception. Although in Texas, we never had no RedCoats so we never picked up on the Brit pronunciation. Nor do we include superfluous U's in words like colour, vapour, etc. ;-)

One might argue that it's not the "u" that's superfluous, but the "o". In any case, that's a good reason for keeping them both! Who invented this language anyway?
