Can anyone please give a detailed pronunciation method for the word laboratory? I mean, is it labo-ra-tory or labo-ra-to-ry?
The CUVPlus electronic dictionary (based on the Oxford Learners' Dictionary) gives
laboratory: l@'b0r@trI (which is lə'bɒrətrɪ in IPA)
The CMUdict electronic dictionary (American English) gives
LABORATORY L AE1 B R AH0 T AO2 R IY0
See this post for a link to the key to the pronunciation codes.
