it just sounds more succinct.
Like Ad-VER-tise-ment and Ad-ver-TISE-ment. the former again. obvs
But I like to mix it, keep it fresh
so I might switch to the second one for greater consistency
a little from Column B.
I know the answer, I just want to update my DiS spreadsheet.
I know the answer, I just want to know how much of a cunt I am
It has three syllables. Med-sin is just ignorant. Same as people who say pleece instead of puh-leece.
If that makes me a pleb, so be it.
Sobeit for me, pleb.
I don't even know what it means.
It's how annoying people pronounce police.
and so is Marckee.
BBC news readers say 'contra-versy' so that is the correct way.
If you've never seen or heard a word before, what do you do? Do you pronounce it how its written? because this keeps happening to me and people take the piss but I can't help it.
Most of our words come from there so it would help you to at least make a decent guess.
Do you charge for this advice -dan-? because you're very good.

and she pronounced `stoic` ummm ... `stoyk`
I haven't shut up about it to her yet.

Drives me fucking spare. And, to make it worse, she puts red peppers in the curry.
No one says con-tra-VER-see.
no-one in this thread understands the concept of a stressed sound in a word
Interesting, but I've certainly never heard it pronounced that way. The standards are either a ditrochee (like my second option) or a second paeon (like my first, which I suppose could also be pronounced as a diamb, but that's not the issue). So there.
so take this shit back to wikipedia and stop trying to make a big contra-VEERRRRR-sy out it.
Stephen Fry already taught me everything about metric feet.
Maybe this is why marckee's confused.
with an unnecessarily racist Italian accent.
'no need to be so trochee about it'.
Y'see, it's funny because it's funny.
Unless they say con-TROV-er-see.
ICE cream! ICE cream!
i'm from there. thats how you say it.
That's just what you penisfosternians tell yourselves.
