Feb-rary

"Pitcher" instead of "picture" and "punkin" instead of "pumpkin." (My wife does the latter and it drives me nuts.)

So do you say Feb-rue-airy or Feb-you-airy?

I recently heard a lady on BBC radio pronounce Wednesday as Wed'n-stay, and it caught me off guard.  I'm not sure I've ever actually heard someone pronounce that first d before‚Äďat least, someone who wasn't trying to be funny.


Also, people who read the Bible aloud in church but don't know the difference between prophecy and prophesy.

The "t" in often.

Nobody pronounces the "t" in listen or hasten - why in often?

Well, it's a longer version of the word "oft".  And everybody pronounces the t in "oft".   :meh:

(Note that the other words in your list have similar stories, so...  whatever.)
