in thread My favorite silent English letter is:

My american collegue (born in Philadelphia) says Alantic City.
He says that is correct. However today I have asked him this question, and he has responded:

In the New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia area the 't' tends to be pronounced as a 'd' when it is the first letter and silent when it is in the word. This is like the Italian accents from the different regions.

    Hmm, I thought you were talking about the second t. Folks around here say "Atlannic" in casual conversation.
