I am aware that there are (at least) two pronunciations of the word "beloved". (Sorry, I don't know how to show them in symbols, but I'll try!)
Beloved: bi-l^ vd (ends the same way as the third form of the verb "love" does)
Your sentence is correct.
I'd also use the second pronunciation when "beloved" is used as a noun.
Mr. Tomam I to understand that both pronunciations are OK and either can be used in any situation.I wouldn't. I've told you that I agreed with Mr Wordy. I would only use pronunciation #2 here, for example:
"Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today..."
The use of pronunciation #1 would sound distinctly odd to me in the quote above. So, yes, I would consider pronunciation #1 wrong there.
So some people might say "beloved" as "bee-loved".
People are waiting to help.
