We were playing Iron Banner this evening, got a new dialogue snippet. Thought it was pretty funny; repeated it to the party. SteelGaribaldi wanted a copy. Here it is! (Don't mind the really terrible shooting right before it starts; I shifted in my chair, and couldn't actually point my gun at my opponent. Luckily, he was shooting less well than I was.)

How else would you pronounce it?

(Accent on the third syllable ("arithMETic") turns it into an adjective (eg 'arithmetic series')... but otherwise, what would you say differently?)

Exactly like that

I would have never expected different pronunciations would unambiguously change syntactical role.
