I've come across answers that say something along the lines of, "Well I've only heard people pronounce it ev'ry."
Yeah, well if people started mass-jumping off of buildings, that doesn't mean I'd do it.
All jokes aside, my point is that people pronounce words differently depending on where you live. "Vietnom" versus "Vietnam", "fahr" (one syllable) versus "fire" (fy-yer).
I'm sort of conflicted about even asking this question, because it's something I need to know for a poem. But in poetry it can be okay to bend/break rules, whether it be slightly changing the enunciation or pronunciation of a word, or not using capitalization in the case of haiku, etc.
Still, tl;dr, I was just curious what people on here thought.
If it's only two syllables, why? If "ever" is a two syllable word--why wouldn't it be ev-er-ee?
What would make "ev-er-ee" wrong? Some old rule in a dusty tome buried by the sands of time?
