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”.
Accustomed – For this word: the “A” turns into a true-schwa; the “cc” combination is pronounced simply like the single hard letter “c” (this is one of TWO standard pronunciations of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); then, the “u” is short; the “o” turns into a u-schwa; and since the root-word ends with the letter “m” – the “e” of the “-ed” ending is silent, and the final “d” is (often) stopped.
– /ə-KUHS-tuhm-d/ – /ə.ˈkʌs.tə(ʌ)m.d/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable and that the “d” ending (when not stopped) acts as a separate syllable –
