How to pronounce administrator
Most of the IT professionals who I coach say the word administrator in a way that’s difficult for native speakers of American English to understand.
Follow these four steps to pronounce the word ADMINISTRATOR clearly and correctly.
AD MIN I STRA TOR (5 syllables)
STEP 1. Emphasize the second syllable. Stress MIN to make it stand out.
STEP 2. Reduce the sound of the first A.
STEP 3. Reduce the sound of the second I.
STEP 4. Say the last T with a D sound.
