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”.
Ambiguity – For this word: the “A” is short; the first “i” is an i-schwa; the “g” is hard; the “u” is pronounced like the pronoun “you”; there is a phantom “w” in-between the “u” and the “i” (this is a product of the transition from one vowel sound to the next); and for the “-ity” suffix – the “i” is an i-schwa, the “t” is a flap-t, and the final “y” is pronounced like the long letter “e” (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix in The Common Tongue).
– /æm-bih-GYOU-wih-dee/ – /æm.bɪ.ˈgju.wɪ.ɾiː/ – Notice also that the stress is on the first syllable –
