I've noticed that when people read things like Bible passages outloud, when they encounter unfamiliar names, there is a strong tendency for penultimate stress. As for that word, I'd probably say /"sAti@'grAh@/ (" for secondary stress, ' for primary) -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'. Everyone's just a big dork or nerd, you just have to find people who are dorky the same way you are." - overheard ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
