“Star Trek” actor and longtime Stern Show announcer George Takei is famous for his at times rather unique way of saying certain words, which inspired Howard and co-host Robin Quivers on Wednesday to play the George Takei Pronunciation Game in his honor.

Listening to clips of George pronouncing a variety words, the two had to guess whether he’d say them the standard way or, as Robin put it, “the Takei way.” Check out the audio (below) and see how well you know George’s diction.
