    There are two accepted way to pronounce it.

    I pronounce it:
    day(uh)-tee

    Also acceptable is:
    dee(uh)-tee

    In both cases:
    (uh) is a barely pronounced schwa
    the accent is on the first syllable

    Merriam Webster online confirms this
    'dE-&-tE or 'dA-&-tE

    Note: you may need to download the .WAV file (7K), then manually play it by double clicking it from Explorer. The first half of the word is truncated in my machine due to the slowness of Quicktime and the bloat code of the M$ OS.
