I “googled” the word anonymize to verify its spelling because it is not in the Chrome’s dictionary. Before I closed the tab, on a whim, I clicked the little speaker icon to hear Google’s pronunciation of the word and was taken aback. Google seems to think that the word is pronounced
That seemed wrong because while I don’t recall hearing anyone say the word anonymize, I certainly never said it like that. More over, nobody pronounces anonymous in that manner, so I can’t imagine why the variant should be any different.
From what I can tell, it looks like everybody else agrees with me on the pronunciation, which leaves me wondering where/how the heck Google got that awkward pronunciation. The obvious guess was that, as usual, it scraped it from Wiktionary or Wikipedia, but I did not see any such indication there.
The dictionary section does not give any indications of where they draw their references, so I am left wondering if that really is an actual pronunciation of the word or if Google just messed up.
