Aesthetic Pronunciation

The pronunciation of "Aesthetic" differs slightly between US and UK English:

US Pronunciation:
/ɛsˈθɛtɪk/ (es-THET-ik)

- "Aesth-" is pronounced like "est" in "best"
- "-etic" is pronounced like "etic" in "prohetic"

UK Pronunciation:
/iːsˈθɛtɪk/ (ee-STHET-ik)

- "Aesth-" is pronounced like "east" in "yeast"
- "-etic" is pronounced like "etic" in "prohetic"

In both US and UK English, the stress is on the second syllable (es-THET-ik and ee-STHET-ik respectively).

The main difference is in the first syllable, where US English uses a short "e" sound (es-), while UK English uses a long "ee" sound (ee-).
