How is the word " environment" pronounced?

(P. K. Seshadri, Chennai)

The first syllable is like the "in" in "pin", "bin", and sin". The "ir" is pronounced like the "ire" in "fire", "tire", and "dire". The following "o" and "e" are pronounced like the "a" in "china". The main stress is on the second syllable. This is one way of pronouncing the word.
