dristighed =['drèsdi'he'ð]
Explanation:
Sorry it took so long .. this is the closest I can come with the available signs.
Note the stress before the 'the-sound' .. it is to indicate that the suffix is short and strong.
Reference is 'Politiken - Nudansk ordbog' electronic version.

Good luck

For det meste er der vokalsænkning af korte vokaler før 'r', således at i -> e -> è (eller omvendt 3-tal), som i 'prins, briller'. Derimod er der sjældent vokalsænkning af en lang vokal som for eksempel 'i' i drive, rive eller skrive. Samme lyd høres da i 'drift' men bør næppe heller yde fremme.

neutral  NetLynx: Hmmm, jeg ville bestemt lydskrive begge i'er som 'i'; jeg ved, at 'è' eller 'é' ofte høres, men det er journalisters og politikeres dårlige sprog og uvidenhed - og bør ikke nyde fremme!

  -> Uha-uha .. helt enig vi skal passe på med de alt for flade vokaler. Men med et spidset 'i' her går man i den anden grøft. .. forklaring/forsvar i noten. Det er ikke så sært at vort sprog er vanskeligt at lære for udlændinge.
