In my blog on interlingual quasi-homophones I mentioned three intralingual examples:
  1. /ˈprɪntsəpl/
  2. /ɡəˈrɪlə/
  3. /henriˈetə/
The last item was taken from a sketch series called A Bit of Fry and Laurie:

Fry: Am I right in thinking that you have a daughter?
Laurie: Yup. /henriˈetə/
Fry: Did he? Did he? I'm sorry to hear that. That must have hurt. That must have hurt like hell on a jet ski.
