unfortunately I don't know how to read dictionary phonetics (a bloody hindrance if peering into other languages, don't trust 'em then!) but yes.. the only one which seems peculiar in the list is tighten, i would pronounce it almost akin to Titan (though not quite THAT hard) or want to skip it altogether and pronounce it by omission
