  • He's sort of right but he's not all the way right.

  • There's this trend going around that Californians  

  • don't pronounce the letter T in their  words. So if you're from California do  

  • write this. I'm going to put some words on the  screen, I want to hear how you pronounce them

  • Okay.

  • Santa Ana 

  • Monterey

  • So, what's happening here? Is it  

  • every T follows the pattern nt vowel diphthong? And that's a known situation where Americans  

  • not just Californians will often drop the T. Other examples: I want it

  • want it, no t. I can't even, no t. 

  • The internet's down, no t. I have a job interview next week. No t.
