    Re: pronunciation of these names?

    Names are notoriously tricky for pronunciation- when English speakers are giving the names and addresses to other native speakers, they often have to spell things.
    - Alecky Blythe I would say /blaɪ/
    - Anna Deavere Smith /dəvɪə/ (it could equally be /dəʊvɪə/)
    - verbatim /vɜ:beɪtɪm/ (Cambridge gives /vɝːˈbeɪ.t ̬əm/ as the American pronunciation)
