    Pronunciation of 'object'

    <My sweetest and respected teachers> according to oxford dictionary symbols, the word 'object' has two different pronunciations.It has a different pronunciation when it is used as verb and different pronunciation when it is used as noun.So do you all use both pronunciations or only one?

    Not a teacher,
    I am dead sure that one has to use both. But for my poor English I used just one.

    Re: Pronunciation of 'object'

    - quite right. Not only does the stress change, but there's also a difference in the vowel.

    The verb is /əb'ʤekt/ , but the noun is /'obʤekt/
