How to pronounce oligarch

Oligarch is a word that comes from the Greek root “olig-” meaning “few” and “arkh-” meaning “rule.” To pronounce it correctly, the “o” should be pronounced like the “o” in “not,” the “l” like the “l” in “like,” the “i” like the “i” in “bit,” the “g” like the “g” in “giant,” the “a” like the “a” in “father,” and the “r” like the “r” in “red.” The emphasis should be placed on the first syllable, “ol.”
