I'm compiling a word list with accurate pronunciations and am hitting a brick wall. What are the proper American pronunciations of the following plural possessives, and by extension, similar words?
boys' caterpillars' classes' companies'
I have done extensive research on the online dictionaries (Cambridge, Oxford, Merriam Webster) and none provide the pronunciations for the plurals of the words I am including in our educational software. The four hardcover dictionaries I possess, also do not provide the pronunciations for the plurals.
This is not a good fit for ELL, because I am not learning the English language (See my bio). I am trying to determine the non-colloquial pronunciation for a group of words that are not well documented in dictionaries. According to the FAQ this is fit for this site, not ELL.
