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”.
Addressed – For this word: the “A” turns into a u-schwa; 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); then 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); and since the root-word ends with the sound of the letter “s” – th “e” of the “-ed” ending is silent; and the final “d” is pronounced like the letter “t”.
