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 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.
