I simply can’t believe “orndž” could be one single syllable. “Ordž” is possible, like in “George”, but “orndž” is too much. There must be some nucleus in the “rndž” sound (schwa or another vowel, eventually a syllabic r) and thus the “o” must be a syllable on its own. Maybe different, but not wrong. :wink: Scrimshaw’s terminology is orthographic (traditional, based on old English pronunciation), yours is phonetic.
