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”.
Watched – For this word: the “a” is pronounced like the short letter “o”; the “tch” combination is pronounced simply like the “ch” combination (this is the standard pronunciation of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); and since the root-word ends with the “ch” sound – the “e” of the “-ed” ending is silent, and the final “d” is pronounced like the letter “t” but is (usually) stopped.
– /wah-ch-[t]/ – /wɑ.tʃ.[t]/ – Notice also that the “ch” and the “t” ending (when not stopped) act as separate syllables, and that, since there is only one syllable with a vowel, there is no word-stress –
