Can someone please help me with the IPA for "ungreeked"

Greeking refers to the method of displaying text representations on the computer screen when letters are too large or too small to be legible.

"ungreeking" would then be the opposite, though it is a made-up word.

Thanks!

Words newly coined tend to follow the rules for spelling and pronunciation, rather than be exceptions. Thus, this word will be of only two syllables, with the -ed ending being pronounced as /t/ as is phonetically correct for a written "d" after an unvoiced consonant such as "k".

The stress falls on the root syllable, "greek", since the other syllable is only a prefix.

"Un" as in "run", and "ee" as in "sheep".

No complications, in other words.

PS Sorry I don't know how to access phonetic script here.

If you wanted it written in the IPA, it would be:

ʌngɹiːkt / ʊngɹiːkt

depending on accent/dialect.
