    'Comfortable'?

    So, I've heard a few ways of pronouncing the word 'comfortable' and here they are. I just want to know if they're all prevalent and accepted pronunciations:

    1. KUMF-tuhr-bl
    2. kum-FER-tuh-bl
    3. KUM-fer-tuh-bl

    What is your verdict?

    I tend to use #3, I hear #1 a lot. I don't think I've heard #2, at least, not from a native speaker.
