@tchrist Every one of those that I found had Latin and/or Greek roots. I'll write a script to sort through this stuff when I have time.

Interesting. It seems like most exceptions are pronounced with a hard g. The second 'g' in "gynecology" is part of the suffix -logy, which comes from the Latin suffix -logia (which comes from the Greek -λογία).

@WS2 Words like "gizmo" and "gimmick" would fall into that category. They are modern English words of unknown origin. I can't find an example with a soft 'g'
