Is it acceptable to pronounce "tarot" with the accent on the second syllable? So, phonetically it would be pronounced "Ta-ROW." My own online research showed me that there were maybe one or two times the example included the accent on the second syllable--and I looked up as many dictionaries I could find. I always put the accent on the ROW part. I thought most people did, until my sister told me that I wasn't pronouncing the word right. Is the pronunciation with the accent on the ROW part associated with any particular group of speakers or geographical region? How common (or uncommon) is it?
Merriam-Webster dictionary has 2 pronunciations, both on first syllable:
All 3 pronunciations on Forvo have accent on first syllable:

The British pronunciation example on http://www.thefreedictionary.com/tarot has accent on second syllable, so I there is an obvious difference between US and UK pronunciation.
