The `e’ in the first syllable and the `i’ in the third syllable are pronounced like the `i’ in `sit’, `bit’, and `kit’. The `ma’ sounds like the word `may’; the `c’ that follows is like the `sh’ in `ship’, `shin’, and `show’. The `ated’ at the end rhymes with `hated’, waited’, and `fated’. The stress is on the second syllable `ma’. This is one way of pronouncing the word.
Someone who is `emaciated’ is very weak and thin.
Example: The emaciated child was unable to walk for more than a minute.
