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”.
Accent – For this word: the “A” is short; for the “cc” combination — the first “c” is hard, and the second “c” is soft (this is one of TWO standard pronunciations of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); then — for the “-ent” suffix – the “e” turns into an i-schwa, and the final “t” is (often) stopped (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix in The Common Tongue).
– /æK-sehn[t]/ – /ˈæk.sɛn[t]/ – Notice also that the stress is on the first syllable and that the “t” ending (when not stopped) acts as a separate syllable –
