    Expectation

    It sounds "beyond expectation". I wonder if it sounds clearly in AmE.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    The first word should have a more distinct d sound at the end. Also the "o" sound is diffrent from our English "o". In the word "expectation" the accent should be on the third syllable not the second.

    It doesn't sound American at all to me. It's very accented.
