I've heard it pronounced "Tong-ay". Not 100% sure that's right though.

That would be the Japanese pronunciation, although really ta-n-gay....

I spoke with the Tange rep at NAHBS, and Frank already said what I was gonna say.
They kind of half-hit the "g" in the back of their throat.

I always pronounced it like the powdered orange beverage. But that's because I had no idea what was correct and don't encounter anyone speaking the word.

Not if you say colour instead of color, tomahto instead of tomeyto, drink tea instead of coffee and have a strong preference for the numbers 5-3-1.

Honestly, I don't think I have ever spoken the word, but when I read or write it I pronounce it the "flange" way in my head.
