Pronunciation Of The Word “Accentuate”

Accentuated – For this word:  the first “A” is pronounced as an i-schwa;  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 the first “e” is short;  the first “t” is pronounced like the “ch” combination (this is due to the placement of the letter “u” directly after it);  the “u” is long;  there is a phantom-w in-between the “u” and the “a” (this is a product of the transition from one sound to another);  then the “a” is a True Long “A”;  the second “t” is flap-t;  and finally — since the root-word ends with the sound of the letter “t” — the “e” of the “-ed” ending is pronounced as an i-schwa, and the final “d” is a flap-d, but is (often) stopped.
