除了geography 和 discount 的名詞和動詞 外，其它的我已說錯好多年了！ Thank you Chris.
My geography teacher in secondary school always likes to pronunce geography as 'draw-ga-phy'. Most of the second language learners can't recognize the stress pattern of the word. By the way, maybe next time you can talk about the omitted voice. For example, 'fortunately'. It has four stresses. But the native speakers especially British like to pronunce it as 'fortune-ly'. The 'ate' is omitted. I felt odd when my professor showed the clip, in which Tony Blair addressing an issue in parliament, to us. I asked him why. He explained that although we native speakers all know we should pronunce it word by word, it's very hard to stick to every syllable correctly in daily life. We also have to consider the rhythm of the sentence. 即我們廣東人所說的順不順口。
鬼佬都有懶音，多人講得幾十年，就會坐正的了。不過你照講----nate ly(讀輕聲的 nit )無人會話你錯。

'direct' pronounced as /dai/ is perfectly acceptable! Besides, the 'va' in innoVAtive can also be pronounced as /vei/.
