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”.
Activities – For this word: the “A” is short; the “c” is hard but is (usually) stopped; the first “i” is short; the second “i” turns into an i-schwa; the second “t” (usually) turns into the flap-t; the “ie” combination is pronounced simply like the single long letter “e” (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); and the final “s” is pronounced (almost) like the letter “z”.
– /æk-TIH-vih-deez/ – /æk.ˈtɪ.və(ɪ).ɾiːz/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable –
