Alright, the next rule I want to talk about is what we're going to call an isolated sound change. And this has to do with D and T. Now in standard American, we in a word like matter would change that double t sound to a d so that it becomes matter. In British dialect they keep the t sound pure. So that it is matter. Now remember we're going to drop that r. So it's matter. It's important that in all the t sounding words, you leave the t as a pure t sound rather than d. Would be words like matter, later, sitting. You wouldn't say sitting. Better. She was better than him. And a sentence would go the beautiful British writer scattered the letters.
