How Do You Say That?

There are those words that I often read, but never hear. When it comes time to say them, I will wonder, "How is that pronounced?" I usually then massacre the word, or rack my brain trying to think of an alternate word.

My husband and I had this discussion about the word hegemony yesterday. I have heard it said two ways, and he had heard a third. Well, wonder no more thanks to the free dictionary. If you are curious how to say hegemony (or anything else), click this link:

I do this all the time with names of stones! I only say them to myself so when I say them out loud I have no idea if I am pronouncing them correctly.
