The other day, I was trying to spell “dreamt”.
In case you didn’t know, it’s spelled D-R-E-A-M-T.
I kept thinking there was a “p” in there somewhere. Say it. “Dreamt”. I said it over and over again, trying to figure out how to spell it without cheating and using spell checker, “Dreamt… Dre-amt… DREMpt.”
You can’t say it a bit of a “p” sound in between the “m” and the “t”. After pronouncing the “m” sound, you have to make a “p” sound to get your lips and tongue in the right place to prouunce the “t”. It’s virtually impossible to dodge that little puff of air known as our “p” sound.
But be ye warned when you’re spelling it. There’s no “p”.
