> So why not beh-ind, ah-ead, beeh-ive etc? Is there a good phonetic
As a native speaker of English, because it is. I might yell be (breath) hind
or be-f***ing-hind, never beh (breath) ind or beh-f***ing-hind. If I were
emphasizing my words, it might be a (pause) head, but never ah (pause) ead.
Beehive is a compound word, and would be pronounced as such.
