    Anthony

    What is the accurate pronunciation of Anthony?

    I have heard many people pronounce it as "an/ thon /ny" rather than "an/ ton/ ny."

    In addition to that, what's the pronunciation of "bury?"
    I have heard people say "bury" as "bury" rather than "bery."

    Do we have to take the difference between AE and BE into consideration? Or it has nothing to do with the cases shown above?

    Sorry :( that I have too many questions. Let me ask one more! :o

    pronounce + sth + as +sth
    pronounce +sth + like +sth
    Which one is correct?

    Thanks a million!!! :P
