Etymology[edit]

From Latin necessitas.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (Castilian) IPA(key): /neθesiˈtaɾ/, [neθesiˈt̪aɾ]
  • (Latin America) IPA(key): /nesesiˈtaɾ/, [nesesiˈt̪aɾ]

Colloquial pronunciations[edit]

Latin America pronunciation[edit]
  • Fast speech: /neːsiˈtaɾ/, [neːsiˈt̪aɾ]
  • Faster speech: /neːiˈtaɾ/, [neːiˈt̪aɾ] and /nejˈtaɾ/, [nejˈt̪aɾ]
  • Fastest speech: /niˈtaɾ/, [niˈt̪aɾ]

The latter used for really fast speeches. It is considered lazy speech since natives find it tricky to pronounce two [s] sounds in the same word; however, it is one of the most common ways to find it in daily dialogues.
