"Interesting" would be pronounced by me as ~intristeeng.  In thefreedicitonary.com you can click the flags and hear:

USA = ~intristeeng,

UK = ~intresteeng


I speak the words here   https://clyp.it/ywkdabhe#

Or is it "inneresting" or "intristing" or "intresting"?

Dialect and accents fascinate me. I like to try to figure out where people are from by listening to their accents and regional words.

I noticed on my US travels that "inneresting" is used in Ohio and Great Lakes area.

How is it pronounced where you live?
