Niche, bachelor, and machine all come to English from Latin through French,
so you can make a good case for "neesh" and "ma sheen'," but I can only
guess it's "batch' e ler" because of some arcane French (or British)
pronunciation rule. Machete is Spanish and should be pronounced "ma chet' e,
" although American dictionaries substitute a schwa for the "a" and permit
either ch or sh at the start of the second syllable.
