    /kˈɔɪneɪ/ according to the LPD, with the possibility of the final diphthong becoming / i:/ or / i/.

    The Cambridge Pronunciation dictionary agrees, but says that in AmE the stress may be on the second syllable.

    Sorry - the stress mark should, of course, have been before the /k/, not after it.
