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”.
Arrogant – For this word: the first “A” is a Long “A” / Short “I” Diphthong (this is due to the placement of the letter “r” directly after it); the “rr” combination is pronounced simply like the single letter “r” (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); the “o” is pronounced as a u-schwa; the “g” is hard; and for the “-ant” suffix – the “a” is pronounced as an i-schwa; and the final “t” is (often) stopped (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix in The Common Tongue).
– /AYR-uh-gihn-[t]/ – /ˈeɪɹ.ə(ʌ).gə(ɪ)n.[t]/ – Notice also that the stress is on the first syllable and the “t” ending (when not stopped) acts as a separate syllable –
