Mind Blown: Of(t)en

The T in "often" is not pronounced!

I first learned this in a public speaking book. Then, I checked Google. Then, I checked The Merriam-Webster Dictionary (paperback style, 2004) which also says the word "often" is pronounced "o-fen".

And just now, I used TheFreeDictionary.com to hear the word pronounced in an American and British accent.

Mind Blown!
