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”.
Hilarious – For this word: the “H” is pronounced audibly; the first “i” is an i-schwa; the “a” is a Long “A” / Short “I” Diphthong (this is due to the placement of the letter “r” directly after it); the second “i” is pronounced like the long letter “e”; there is a phantom consonant “y” in-between the “i” and the “-ous” combination (this is a product of the transition from one sound to the next); and for the “-ous” suffix – the “ou” combination is pronounced as an i-schwa (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix in The Common Tongue).
– /hih-LAYR-ee-yihs/ – /hə(ɪ).ˈleɪɹ.iː.jə(ɪ)s/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable –
