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!
