so a few days ago i saw this video on instagram claiming that folks, especially people from california, do not pronounce the t's in certain words such as monterey or huntington beach. ig the t has to be in the middle of the word?? i was so shocked because i also do not pronounce the t's in certain words so now i'm self conscious. though, most folks i'm around also do the same thing xD
i don't have a "valley girl" accent, but i have accidently picked up dialects from being around spanish speakers at school, work etc. i had to put in effort to talk like my usual self again, since i am a native english speaker who's second language is spanish.
internet = innernet
santa monica = sanna monica
sacramento = sacramenno
apparently i was today years old when i found out that costco has a t?? everyone around me pronounced it like "cosco", so i thought that was how it was spelled lol.
