I feel like this is the correct answer, said like a true British narrator describing the Emperor penguins migrations from Antarctica to their mating grounds on the southern coast of Chile.

re: What’s the correct pronunciation of “Extraordinary?”
I think the greater problem with this word isn’t it’s pronunciation, but the misunderstanding of its definition.

Most people think extraordinary only carries a positive connotation of greatness. It’s true meaning is simply something outside of the ordinary. It can be used to say Drew Brees is an extraordinary quarterback, but only from the standpoint that he is unusual compared to others. Saying Drew Brees is an extraordinary quarterback does not necessarily mean he is among the best or a very good quarterback. He could also be extraordinary because he is very bad.

I pronounce all of my speech in an English accent because it makes me seem mysterious and interesting.

It depends upon your accent and the region from which you hail.

I have always pronounced it, "Extrordinary."
