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”.
Approved – For this word: the “A” is pronounced as a u-schwa; the “pp” combination is pronounced simply like the single letter “p” (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); the “o” is pronounced like the long letter “u”; and since the root-word ends with the sound of the letter “v” – the “e” of the “-ed” ending is silent.
– /uh-PROOV-d/ – /ə(ʌ).ˈpɹuv.d/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable and that the “d” ending (when not stopped) acts as a separate syllable –
