  • I just heard a newscaster pronounce this word "hoss-PIT-uh-lyzd", which sounded bizarre to my ears. I've always heard it "HOSS-pit-uh-lyzd".

    How do you folks pronounce it?

  • Emphasis on the -lyzd- syllable is strong but still secondary so I'm with you pterod.

  • Maybe the newscaster was talking about someone who had just received hospitable treatment -- and not someone who had just received hospital treatment...
