    I'm looking at synecdoche like "sinneck-douche," but I'm guessing that's not how you say it.

    I believe it's "syn-eck-duh-kee".
    That word just came up in APE a couple days ago, actually.
    Coincidental timing! :)

    You have the sinneck part right. Si like in the word sin, and the neck like...neck. However the second part is pronounced ducky (...the animal...).

    sineck-ducky

    or you could write it like this I suppose...

    sinneck-duh key
