A glitch is a short-lived fault in a system, such as a transient fault that corrects itself, making it difficult to troubleshoot. A glitch, which is slight and often temporary, differs from a more serious bug which is a genuine functionality-breaking problem.
How do you pronounce the name glitch?
Is the T silent in exactly?
In practice, yes it is virtually silent unless one makes a special effort to pronounce it. When we have a consonant cluster here /ktl/ one sound is often not heard. The linguistice term for it is “dissimilation”.
