in thread My favorite silent English letter is:

There's an invisible 'f' in "laughter" but the invisible 'f' is silent in "daughter".

    For me there is also an invisible "f" in "lieutenant" as the standard British pronunciation is like "leftenant"

      What proper Englishman would want to be promoted to be a "loo tenant"?

      - tye        

        But why choose a replacement pronunciation that sounds very much like being a "lift tenant"? Surely better, but not great.
