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”.
Attractions – For this word: the “A” is pronounced as a u-schwa; the “tt” combination is pronounced like the “ch” combination (this is due to the placement of the letter “r” directly after them); the “a” is short; the “c” is hard but is (often) stopped; for the “-tion” suffix – the “ti” combination is pronounced like the un-voiced “sh” combination; and the “o” is pronounced as an i-schwa (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix in The Common Tongue); and the final “s” is pronounced (almost) like the letter “z”.
– /uh-CHRæK-shihn-z/ – /ə(ʌ)ˈtʃɹæk.ʃə(ɪ)n.z/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable –
