    Yes. Are you sure she's a native speaker? It's hard to tell from a single word, but I think I hear a foreign accent.

    Have you listened to the samples at forvo.com?

    She doesn't sound like a native speaker to me (unless she has a regional accent I'm not familiar with and in which that pronunciation is common). As far as I know, pretty much every variant of English pronounces it as if it starts with "stum". Hers starts with "stom", as if she is someone who is used to pronouncing words phonetically.

    I'd like to hear her say "won" and "stunning".

    At the risk of boring you with the same message over and over again, please use Forvo! You don't need to guess whether someone is a native speaker or which variant they use. It's clearly shown by their username. You can trust the pronunciations on that site!

    Here is the video. The time of the word pronunciation is 3.45

    Re: Is it right to pronounce 'stomach' in this way?

    I opened the video but I didn't bother skipping on to the relevant time. In the first 30 seconds, she mispronounces "pronunciation", saying "pronounciation". As far as I'm concerned, if she can't even get that right, there's little point taking any other advice from her.

    Edit: I listened to the first 90 seconds of the video. She's clearly not a native English speaker. She makes the same "o" error in "other" (I mean the same error she made in "stomach"). She pronounces it as if rhymes with "bother". It doesn't. My guess is she's either Scandinavian or possibly from somewhere in Eastern Europe.

    She definitely isn't a native speaker.

    She doesn't sound Scandinavian. I'd guess she's Polish or Czech.

    I think you are right with your Polish idea

    Remember to end every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
