Hello everyone,

Would 次 in 次ページ be read as じ or as つぎ? Tangorin states that it is じ when used as a prefix, but would this case count as a prefix? Is 次, when attached to another noun, always read as じ if it doesn't have a の particle?

Sincerely,
ForestBird

That's じぺーじ.
I found two exceptions 次送り[つぎおくり] and 次様[つぎよう] in 広辞苑, but these are uncommon/obsolete words, so it's reasonable to consider that the reading is almost always じ.
