Hey. I wanted to know how to pronounce 'education' correctly. ejucation or education?
New Member05
The correct pronunciation is ejucation or "e juh ka shun." Stress is on the 3rd syllable.

Well, it depends. If you are American, it's education. However, if you are Brtish, it's edjucation. I read it somewhere on the web. Emotion: smile

It is the same in both BrE and AmE, except for how the diphthong 'ay' is realized.

Coda d and t, when followed by a back vowel, get affricated (lenited). In some lects, for instance, Australian English, they get affricated even when d and t are in the onset: chune for tune
