Silent “t”


This isn’t much of a rule, but it brings back memories.

The punchline is the last item in the caption—pronouncing the “t” in “often.” I remember my teacher mentioning this in grade school. And my grandmother always pronounced that “t”! I never corrected her.

I have no idea where the rule came from, or where the “t” came from, for that matter. If you know, feel free to comment.
