    Question Dromomaniac

    I am hoping someone would be able to write this phonetically for me. I am doing an engraving and want to make sure it is done correctly. The closest i have gotten is:

    droʊmoʊ-ˈmeɪniˌŠk

    I have also seen it with or without slashes on the ends. Should it be done in a particular font? It is for a traveller so i figured the IPA was the best. Anyway i would like the gift to be done nicely, and I don't have much knowledge in this area. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Ryan

    I'm struggling to find a version, but I would guess at /drəʊməmeɪniːŠk/. As it's an engraving, I would regard the slashes as optional. You can use any font as far as I know.

    I think the stress, which I would put on the third syllable, should be shown. /drəʊmə'meɪniːŠk/
