Em-FA-sis on "trattoria"?

How do you pronounce the word trattoria?

  • trat-TOR-ee-ah
  • trat-tor-EE-ah

The reason I ask is that the word for "farm" or "factory" is fattoria, and the speaker for Duolingo says it: fat-TOR-ee-ah.
As near as I can tell, anyway. I can go to the words tab on the menu and hear it as many times as I want to, but "trattoria"-- which has the same number of syllables and should therefore rhyme exactly-- is not a word used on Duolingo.

But I would say that I hear the word trattoria pronounced "trat-tor-EE-ah", 19 times out of 20.
So does that mean that the Duo speaker is mispronouncing "fattoria" as well?
Or that I'm just not hearing it correctly?

How do you pronounce the word trattoria?

  • Trat-tor-EE-ah (IPA: /tratto'ria/)

the speaker for Duolingo says it: fat-TOR-ee-ah.

It's a wrong pronunciation. Also this word is a parola piana (stress on the penultimate syllable):

  • Fat-tor-EE-ah (IPA: /fatto'ria/)

In all words that end with -ria (meaning "a place where something is performed, or made, or sold"), the stress is carried by the "i" of the suffix (penultimate syllable of the word).
