  • Hi Fugendichter,

    To present (verb) is pronounced "prsént".

    I hope this helps! In future, you can check pronunciation of words at http://oald8.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/dictionary/pronunciation or www.thefreedictionary.com - although I don't know if you could find fine distinctions such as the ones in your question.
