    Re: Is it right to say 'necessary' this way?

    No, The third syllable is too long and too stressed. It almost sounds like a slurred 'necessarily'.

    Put the primary stress on the first syllable—not on the second (as with your old pronunciation) or the third (as with your new one).

    Re: Is it right to say 'necessary' this way?

    When you're not sure about the pronunciation of something in English, head to Forvo. Choose English from the list of languages and then type in the word you're looking for. You will find multiple recordings of native speakers from all over the word.

    Here is the listing for "necessary".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Is it right to say 'necessary' this way?

    Your pronunciation is still wrong. You need to put the stress on the first syllable. At the moment, you're incorrectly putting it on the third.

    Note my corrections above. You must put a space after a full stop, a comma, a question mark or an exclamation mark. Note that there was no need for you to write that post at all. You can just click on the "Like" button or, even better, the "Thank" button.
