An article in this month's Monocle, discussing elections in Chile, referred to anti-Pinochetistas:
The vote was attended by a throng of cheering anti-Pinochetistas.
I am wondering how the word should be pronounced and formed:
Pinochetista with a silent T, as one would pronounce Pinochet? (Pee-no-shay-ee-stah)
Pinochetista with an articulated T, avoiding an awkward diphthong? (Pee-no-shay-tee-stah)
Pinochista, formed like "Francista", the followers of Francisco Franco, by removing the last syllable "-et" and appending the suffix "ista": Pee-no-chee-stah
