pronounced, blaring, blazing, projecting (google translate gives a weird array--I think pronounced is best.) Heard it on a kind of current events discussion show, where some nationalists tend to send messages and the smart host corrected his usage, saying that he doesn't usually act pedantic but given the pedantic nature of the message  containing the incorrect usage...

not to be confused with παρατεταμένος, paratetamenos, which everyone knows means "long drawn out," prolonged, protracted.

The root tetamenos is the same as the 'tract' root in Latin, having to do with drawing, and the simple difference between the words is in the pro vs. para prefix.
