in thread My favorite silent English letter is:

But there is no silent O in "possum" though it is possible there might be a missing one, if you consider possum=opossum. It is quite common for words to lose letters over time, like how the Latin "fenestra" became the French "fenÍtre". Can you tell I do tech support for a dictionary?
