hello - this is my first "real" post. a note of explanation first: i'm working on a project and will need to pronounce greek/latin roots/words, so i humbly turn to the professionals here, since i don't know anyone personally who could advise me. It doesn't have to be super-correct, just not hideously wrong.
right now, i am dealing with the word
i would see the stress placed on the first syllable, with the "a" pronounced like "ah" (dark but short); the "ger" i would pronounce like the "jer" in jerry and the final "e" like the "ay" in day
would that work, or would i embarrass myself completely?
hope the question isn't too inane for the forum and hope that "no brainers" can still sometimes be fun
