Can someone tell me, if the trema is over the middle e, and its purpose is to distinguish separate syllables... is there supposed to be three syllable sounds in this word: creëert, because I don't hear them. Just looking for clarification.

Cree - eert, normally you'll hear a bit of a "j" sound to connect the two long e sounds.

Took a couple of listens, but yep, I caught a very slight "j" sound in there. Thanks!
