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”.
Atrocities – For this word: the “A” is pronounced as a u-schwa; the “t” is pronounced like the “ch” combination (this is due to the placement of the letter “u” directly after it); the “o” is short; the “c” is soft; the “i” is pronounced as an i-schwa; the “t” is pronounced as a flap-t; the “ie” combination is pronounced like the long letter “e” (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); and the “s” is pronounced (almost) like the letter “z”.
– /uh-CHRAH-sih-deez/ – /ə(ʌ).ˈtʃɹɑ.sɪ.ɾiːz/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable –
