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”.
Actress – For this word: the “A” is short; the “c” is hard but is (often) stopped; the “t” is pronounced like the “ch” combination (this is due to the placement of the letter “r” directly after it); and for the “-ess” suffix – the “e” turns into an i-schwa, and the final “ss” combination is pronounced simply like the single letter “s” (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix in The Common Tongue).
– /æ[K]-chrihs/ – /ˈæ[k].tʃɹə(ɪ)s/ – Notice also that the stress is on the first syllable –
