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”.
Visualized – For this word: the first “i” is short; the “su” combination is pronounced like the voiced “sh” combination; the “a” is pronounced as a true-schwa; for the “-ize” suffix – the “i” is long; and the “e” combines with the “-ed” ending; and since the root-word ends with the sound of the letter “z” – the “e” of the “-ed” ending is silent; and the final “d” is (often) stopped (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix combination in The Common Tongue).
– /VIH-zhə-laiz-[d]/ – /ˈvɪ.ʒə.laiːz.[d]/ – Notice also that the stress is on the first syllable –
