Notes:
Standard suffix pronunciation:  When a word ends in "ate" and can be used as a verb or a noun/adjective, the last syllable of the word is often pronounced differently depending upon how it is used. The verb is typically pronounced with a long "a" as in the word "ate", but the noun or adjective is typically pronounced with a soft "a" which sounds more like "ut" as in the word "hut".
