Must be for people in Mass. They pronounce words by ignoring letters.
IE: Worchester--- Pronounced as spelled wor-ches-ter
how they say it- Wooster. The r the c and the h are silent.
A town 40 miles away is Dorchester. By this logic it should be pronounced Dooster!
No. They say Dor-ches-ter.
I am confused!
I think it has something to do with appearance
Yea, there should just be more vowels.
I think linguists were lazy in coining new words and they just re-adjusted words eg Know without "k" would be "now"..so instead of putting efforts they resorted to reshuffling.
