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

consonants dropped:

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.
