"In this Britain you speak of, other than the lack of /Z/, does my sentence 
contain all the other phonemes you use?  I'm actually surprised that I never 
noticed this pronunciation before.  I've spent about a month in England, out 
near Bristol, and somehow missed this word entirely."

You will hear both pronunciations in Britain /"g&rIdZ/ as well as /g@"rA:Z/. 
Note that English English /g@"rA:Z/ needs /A:/ with a length marker since EE 
unlike GA isn't isochronic, like Merkan.
