Cray-ger. But say it fast, one syllable, and the 'ger' like in an exclamation mark. Not "kreg".

2. Vocal prominence or emphasis given to a particular syllable, word, or phrase.
3. A characteristic pronunciation, especially:

You are absolutely right and the reason is Americans tend to be sloppy with their enunciation. I always try to say "Crage".
