Mensagem:  I guess so, Johannes. Webster's Third New Interntnl Dictionary on which I have always fallen back gives it variously pronounced as follows:

/'ham(p)*shi(e)r/
/'haam*shi(e)r/
/'haam*shi/
/'haam*she(r)/

where ' indicates primary stress, both the (p) and the (r) indicate you may hear these pronounced in some American Eastern dialects whereas in others you may not, as pat clearly pointed out already. In no way could I convincingly represent the secondary stress, so I had to leave in the copied & pasted "*" instead and hope it did the trick.
