Must be for people in Mass. They pronounce words by ignoring letters.<br />
<br />
<br />
IE: Worchester--- Pronounced as spelled wor-ches-ter<br />
<br />
how they say it- Wooster. The r the c and the h are silent.<br />
<br />
A town 40 miles away is Dorchester. By this logic it should be pronounced Dooster!<br />
<br />
No. They say Dor-ches-ter.<br />
<br />
I am confused!
