Stop Embarrassing Yourself: Pronounce "Debt" And Other Words Correctly.
Many Nigerians tend to pronounce certain words incorrectly because, Britain, American, Australia and other English-speaking Countries pronounce some words differently. So today, these are some words we likely pronounce wrongly.
The "t" is silent. Therefore we have li- sn, not lis- tin.
The "b" is silent. The correct pronunciation is "bom" not "bomb".
The "t" is silent. Therefore it is "fa-sn" not "fas- ten".
The "b" is silent. The correct pronunciation is "plo- ma" not "plom- ba"
The "t" is silent. The correct pronunciation is "ha-sin" not "has-tin"
The "b" is silent. Therefore we have "det" and not "debt".
Many Nigerians would laugh at you when you pronounce it this way, they will think you are pronouncing "death" or "dirt" but the truth is, they even pronounce these words wrongly.
