Subject: Re: Pronounciation of ...
While we are on the subject of various pronciations (e.g., jewelry), I
thought I'd mention some English words with difficult to pronounce final
consonants. In the following, I commonly hear one or more of the final
twelfth, pron'd TWELF ("th" dropped)
sixth, pron'd SIKST ("h" dropped)
months, pron'd MUNTS ("h" dropped)
wreaths, pron'd REEZ ("th" dropped)
Have other people noticed this? Maybe pronchick Rima Mc has.
