    People pronounce it both ways, it's a personal preference or sometimes based on one's accent. I always say "in-trest-ing" because I never say "in-ter-est", I always say "in-trest"

    But in some southern US accents, for example, people would say it more like "inner-esting" - it just depends on where you come from

    Correctly, it's pronounced -in-ter-es-ting'.
