A particular OSBC newscaster pronounces ‘ANTI’ as /an-tahy/ every time. This is American English pronunciation.
Whereas, the British English – which is official in Nigeria – pronounces ‘ANTI’ as /an-tee/.
Is it that he and his news producers don’t know the difference? Or deliberate Americanisation?
Adherence to standard rule is essential.
It is good for every news outfit to own copies of English Pronouncing Dictionary (EPD) – a short of Bible of English Language pronunciation – and to also do once-in-a-while tutorials on pronunciation.
