I got quite puzzled about the pronunciation of "effect, effective." I've looked them up on some dictionaries already, and I found that some dictionaries say "Uh-ficient, Uh-ffective" while others say " I-fficient, I-ffective." How would you pronounce these 2 words? Please tell me. Thank you all in advance!

    If you type the words into the Dictionary search box at the top of this page, and then click on 'Listen' on the Dictionary page, you will hear them pronounced in several accents. They are all correct pronunciations.

    My question is that I am not sure whether these 2 kinds of pronunciation are both heard often or not.
