Pronunciation: " considering " = o O o o ; " comfortable " = .....
(A) O o o (C) o O o
(B) o O o o (D) o o O o
My answer is (D)
What's your answer?
Please correct me with your explantion.
My choice is (A) O o o = comf'ta'ble.
Choice (D) o o O o produces a non-English sounding word as the third syllable in com'for'ta'ble is pronounced with a reduced vowel and reduced vowels do not carry primary stress.
Note that, there are two ways to pronounce comfortable:
 comf-ta-ble <3 syllables>
 com-fr-ta-ble <4 syllables>
Soup is right
Two ways to pronounce comfortable.
I thought the answer was (D) cos com.for.TA.ble, the stress was on TA....the 3rd syllable...
