The pronunciation of any word in English (or any language at all) is not Universal. This is because there are many different dialects of The English Language — both throughout America, and also world-wide. The pronunciations that are presented on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! are based-upon a combination of both “common usage”, and the most neutral accent used in The International Common Tongue — a.k.a. “American English”.
Abbreviations – For this word: the first “A” turns into a u-schwa; the “bb” combination is pronounced simply like the single letter “b” (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); the “e” is long; the “i” is pronounced like the long letter “e”; there is a phantom consonant “y” in-between the “i” and the “a” (this is a product of the transition from one vowel sound to the next); the second “a” is a True Long “A”; and for the “-tion” suffix – the “ti” combination is pronounced like the un-voiced “sh” combination, and the “o” turns into an i-schwa (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix in The Common Tongue); and the final “s” is pronounced (almost) like the letter “z”.
