Here, do this...

1. Pronounce the letter "D"

2. Say "addicts"

3. Pronounce 1 and then 2.

Yup.. and 'addicts' is only pronounced as 'a (just like the letter 'A') - dicks' if you want it to be the way you typed it.
It means someone who loves something very much, is addicted to something (in this case, dramas :lol ). Uh-huh.

d-ə-dĭkt's

ya know, dictionary.com writes out how to pronounce every word with the definition as well. not to mention they even have sound files for each word. if you can't figure it out by reading you can listen to them say it. so next time you won't need to start a thread :-)

Umm....what's the fuss? There's pretty much just one correct way to pronounce it. I don't really see where you got the "dick" part from? Perhaps it's something on your mind? :evil:

But she does have a point, some of us are really dicks.
Confused? Go FAQ yourself!

I'm thinking that we're comparing where the stress is on the word addicts maybe.
Like stress on the A so it's AAAAAHHH-dicts or the stress on the other half so it's Ah-dicts.

pronunciation

Post by AntiqueGeek » Jul 7th, '07, 05:55

Another way to look at it is that 'addicts', the verb (as in
"she addicts herself to Asian drama"), has its stress on the 2nd syllable and
the 'a' sound is unstressed (kind of an "uhhh" sound, also called the "schwa" sound,
as found in the vowel sound of the 2nd syllables of 'apple' or 'riot'),
while 'addicts', the plural noun (as in "they are all just a bunch of Liar Game addicts"),
has its stress on the 1st syllable, which - due to the stress - is what in English is
called the "short a" sound, as in "hat" or the 1st syllable of "apple" (as opposed
to what nearly every other western language calls the "short a" sound, which
is closer to the vowel sound in the English "what" or "hot"), phonetically represented
by the Old English letter 'aesc' (sort of an 'a' blended with an 'e': the HTML code æ
will display it for ISO8859-1 encoding and some others).

I think of 'd-addicts" as using "dee" plus the noun pronunciation of "addicts",
but I suppose a case could be made for the verb pronunciation.
