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”.
Acquainted – For this word: the first “A” turns into a u-schwa; the “c” is silent; the “qu” combination is pronounced like a “kw” combination; the “ai” combination is pronounced like the Long “A” / Long “E” Diphthong (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); and since the root-word ends with the letter “t” – the “e” of the “-ed” ending turns into an i-schwa, and the final “d” is a flap-d, but is (often) stopped.
– /uh-KWAYN-tih[d]/ – /ə(ʌ).ˈkweiːn.tə(ɪ)[ɾ]/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable –
