Well, it's not our fault :-). We chose a perfectly normal English
word.

Pronounce "subversion" as you would the word "subversion".

If you pronounce "subversion" with an Australian accent, then
pronounce "subversion" as you would with an Australian accent.

If you pronounce "subversion" with an Hungarian accent, then
pronounce "subversion" as you would with an Hungarian accent.

If you pronounce "subversion" with an North American accent, then
pronounce "subversion" as you would with an North American accent.

Etc.
