Other option is Al-guy?

The al-jays are definitely an Americanism.

Are there different pronunciations for multiple types of algae and one for a singular type. i.e: al-gee plural and al-guy singular or versa visa :?:
Well, the singular of algae is alga, but I think I see where you're going - like a group of more than one fish of the same species is FISH, and a group of fish from different species is FISHES? Is that what you mean?

Al-jee has to be one of the most irritating words a person has to hear :twisted: I would actually ban it :twisted:

Al-gee for me, although there may be slight variations of it due to different accents :p
