    How to pronounce "Tachymeter"

    Hey guys,

    I've heard it pronounced so many different ways... I dont know if its one of those "exactly as it's spelt" words, or if it has a unique pronunciation... And yes, I know this is a ridiculously stupid question...

    "Tachemeter"?

    "TAKmeter"

    "TIKEmeter"?

    "Tashmeter"?

    "Tash-E-meter"?

    literally Tach-Y-Meter

    I just wanna make sure I'm pronouncing it right, so I don't sound like an idiot, thinking I know so much about watches only butcher the pronunciation of such a common WIS vocab word. Try to spell out the way you pronounce it...

    Thanks for your help.

    I've heard many variants but heard Ta-Key-Meter the most. Some say Taaaa-key-meter and some say Ta-Keeeey-meter, depending on where they are from and what accents they use.. Mind you, this could be completely wrong...

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you're referring to a "glottal stop", the way Liverpoolians (the Beatles) pronounce the word "bottle", or the way we all say "uh oh".
