    Pronunciation of 'mysteries'

    Dear Teacher,

    I would be interested in the pronunciation of 'mysteries'; I mean the plural form of mystery.

    Thank you for your help,

    Truly,
    magan

    For a good illustration of the different number of syllables, click HERE and listen to the two pronunciations. Bookmark the site for future reference.

    There are now three pronunciations of "mysteries".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    In AmE it's pronounced the same as "Mister ease" except only the first syllable is emphasized.
