subcutaneous adjective
/ˌsʌb.kjʊˈteɪ.ni.əs/

subcutaneous
(ˌsʌbkjuːˈteɪnɪəs )

cutaneous

/ˌsʌb.kjʊˈteɪ.ni.əs/

"Did you know we carry two kinds of fat? Surprisingly, that jiggley blubber you see in bathing suit pictures is the safer kind. It's known as subcutaneous fat."

"Dr. Lieb participated in a study at Eastern Virginia Medical School comparing visceral fat to subcutaneous fat. He said the results were clear: visceral is worse."

"So you don't want to have a whole lot of subcutaneous fat either, but in general, the subcutaneous fat is the less inflammatory, the more healthy, of the two depots, the two types of fat," he said.



Listening beyond numbers to that word, but I couldn’t hear the k sound although it has been repeated four times.
However, In this video, it is being pronounced clearly to those who are beginners like me. I have no excuse to say that the k sound is not clear at all. In a word, will you listen to this video to make sure that the k sound is not being dropped or it is difficult for me to hear it because I am still a beginner, please?


P.S. -- I wish I could do more to help
you with myself and apologize for not being helpful. Fortunately, I am lucky to have you, native speakers, around. Thank you
profusely for your patience and understanding.

The /k/ sound is there.

:up: - although the (first? ... I didn't watch the whole video) doctor doesn't MAKE* much of it. He also does indeed say 'depot' (/di:pǝʊ/) which I at first assumed was a transcription error for 'deposit' (which I'd expect to hear from a Br English speaker - although Ray might be able to enlighten me about a possible technical use of the term 'depot').

PS * omitted first time round, though it's what I meant.

No, I wouldn't say "depot" there - though I couldn't say it was wrong.

"Depot (pron.: /ˈdɛp/ dep-oh or /ˈdp/ dee-poh) is from the French dépôt which means a deposit (as in geology or banking) or a storehouse."

Also, OD, note that 'depot' is pronounced here in the American way. The Br Eng pronunciation is /'depǝʊ/.
