Ah good point, added to the list, thankyou!
Not in Australia – it’s three syllables, not four: sekəndri
Also doppelganger and googleganger have a short a sound, even in Melbourne.
My source for these lists was the Macquarie Dictionary of a bit over a decade ago, and the copy is in my office and I’m at home right now, I’ll see if I can remember to look this up but I’m pretty sure I checked them all with the phonetic script. Of course the pronunciation may have changed now.
