  5. Pronunciation of -si-.

Pronunciation of -si-.

I hear that the TTS often pronounces -si- as [s] instead of [ʃ] , for example in the word eisiau which I’ve been taught is more like isho, ishe, ishai (depending on dialect). Similarly the word siwmper the TTS pronounces like sumper but should it not be shumper (which is a closer approximation of the English [dʒ] sound.

Is this an accepted pronunciation or an error?
