how come there is only a British pronunciation for the word "Gigantism" in the free dictionary website?

does the american pronunciation for the word gigantism differ from the british one? the british regards the 2nd g in the word as we pronounce g in goal.

thanks for the help..

That is really strange! It's also strange that I happened to see this post, as I rarely ever look at anything that is not included in the "English" section. I have no idea why TFD doesn't include an audio version of the American English pronunciation of the word.

Nevertheless, the American pronunciation of "gigantism" is the same as the British one given on this site.
