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”.
Associated – For this word: the “A” is pronounced as a u-schwa; the “ss” combination is pronounced simply like the single letter “s” (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); the “o” is long; the “c” is soft; the “i” is pronounced like the long letter “e”; for the “-ate” suffix – the “a” is a True Long “A”; the “t” is (usually) stopped, but with the addition of the “-ed” ending – the “t” is a flap-t, and the “e” merges with the “-ed” ending, and since the root-word ends with the sound of the letter “t” (even if it’s stopped) – the “e” of the “-ed” ending is pronounced as an i-schwa, and the final “d” is a flap-d, but is (often) stopped.
– /uh-SOH-see-ay-tih[d]/ – /ə(ʌ)ˈso.siː.eiː.tə(ɪ)ɾ/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable –
