The first time I heard anyone say `tar-zhay' was the day before yesterday. But the speaker is visiting from Maine and gives a French pronunciation of her own family name, where her son gives an American pronunciation. So, I thought, after I figured out what in the world she was talking about, that she had gone to 'Target' and was giving some odd pronunciation just to be funny. Since Target is such a high-class place to shop, I go there all the time. I have ever heard any of the employees not advertisements refer to it by any other name than 'Target.'
