To add to Victoria, if you have two consonants together in the same word e.g. "shatter, banned, hilly", then there will only ever be a single consonant sound. In my cases /t/ /n/ and /l/ This applies in every accent.

I think the best option is to listen to how different native speakers pronounce these words. Sometimes we put emphasis on different parts of the word, depending on if we speak British or American English: Dinner: uk /ˈdɪn.ər/ us /ˈdɪn.ɚ/ http://forvo.com/word/dinner/#en Strange: /streɪndʒ/ http://forvo.com/word/strange/#en Animal: /ˈæn.ɪ.məl/ http://forvo.com/word/animal/#en

The correct spelling is "pronunciation."
