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”.
Address [Noun Form] – For this word: the “A” is short; the “dd” combination is pronounced like the soft “g” (this is NOT the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue — but is pronounced this way because of the placement of the letter “r” directly after it); and for the “-ess” suffix – the “e” is short, and the “ss” combination is pronounced simply like the single letter “s” (this is one of TWO standard pronunciations of this suffix in The Common Tongue).
– /æ-dʒrehs/ – /ˈæ.dʒɹɛs/ – Notice also that the stress is on the first syllable –
