> relatives. Is there some other way to pronounce it?

Being completely ignorant of custom, I assumed that when spoken, it had a
consonant cluster at the end, and was pronounced as spelled, with no "i".
I'm really curious how it was pronounced in the Old Country (Poland?).

This reminds me of the first time I encountered what is apparently a
typical Flemish name-spelling, in this case, "Servranckx". No problem that
I know of in pronouncing it, but the C cluster at the end is delightful.
