"Terabithia is pronounced with a short "e" sound as in the word "bear", in "Ter", and the short "a" sound as in "about" for the "a" and a short "i" sound as in "inch" for "bith" and finally a long "e" sound as in "ease"  and then another short "a" sound as in "about" for the "a" at the end.  I know this looks elementary and complicated, but as there is no dictionary respelling, this is the best explanation I could give.   I also put this together

(těr uh bith ē uh)  I hope this helps.
