I have tried this on DECtalk and it says ventriloquist mostly fine. Maybe it's a version difference. You could simply turn on phoneme input with [:phone on] and then replace the word ventriloquist with [vehntr'ihlaxkwihst], don't forget the brackets.

He has tried entering it with normal spelling and changed the spelling in an attempt to have it pronounced correctly.  Does anyone know how to make Dectalk say ventriloquist? Snoopi would be using it in his talk, not singing it.
